    We had this for dinner last night & loved it. The only change I will make is next time adding a little garlic to boost the flavor. - 4/29/09

    I would guess that it's 2 cups UNCOOKED pasta. Also, I'd put the onions (and country crock) in with the Chicken and grill the onions before adding any cheeses. And to echo previous comments, garlic is a NECESSITY in this recipe. - 5/11/09

    This was delicious! I just made it for lunch. I have a habit of cooking several chicken breasts for the week so I just shredded two of them into the sauce - saved me some time. - 4/28/09

    COUNT THE CALORIES!!!!!
    It sounded WAY too good to be true ... and it was. This recipe, using Spark's calculator, is 592 calories per serving -- Yikes!!! That's a whole lot more than 338.
    But I'm sure that taste-wise it's a definite FIVE STAR!! - 5/18/09

    This was wonderful. I cooked the chicken and onions in the Country Crock and used one of the frozen steamables for the broccoli. It would be great with mushrooms also! - 1/11/10

    One day, I will read the comments before I begin making a recipe! It was only after I had cooked the chicken and added the broth that I realized I hadn't used the onions or butter. Added onions to the chicken/broth mix & didn't use the butter. Added salt, pepper, garlic powder. - 12/2/09

    Today was such a chilly day, and this was such a warm, comforting meal. I added a little cornstarch to thicken the cheese sauce, and I skipped the country crock and just cooked the onions in the chicken and broth. Mmmm, mmm... Thanks! - 9/22/09

    The naming of the brands of food was a bit unnecessary - I am assuming that the chicken is sauted in the margarine, although I skipped it completely using Pam instead. There was no mention of adding the onions, so I threw them in with the chicken. Garlic would be good addition. - 6/29/09
