    Where are the labels for the bag?

    Made this for lunch today. It was so good! I’ll definitely shred the chicken better next time.
    I did this “fresh” (it was not a frozen meal). Since the cook time was for frozen I reduced the cook time on the chicken to 6 minutes (4 large breasts) and it was cooked perfectly!

  • Patricia Davis says:

    I made this “fresh” also but didn’t think to decrease the time. It was wonderful anyway! I used gluten free pasta and it was perfect even if I did overcook the chicken. Like a creamy pasta soup. Will definitely make this again.
