    Made this. It was good. Here are my suggestions/what I plan to do different next time.

    1. Use the whole box of pasta. There was plenty of “sauce”.

    2. Chop up the chicken before it goes in. We did it after…either way, I just think it’s easier to do it before hand. FYI, I just used fresh tenders and it was fine.

    3. It was a little soupy (which is why I think more pasta next time)…so I added more cream cheese. I think I probably used a total of 1 – 1 1/2 c.

    4. It needed a little salt…but I would just have people do that on their own. Also, I used blue cheese…so if you use feta, you won’t need salt!

    Strange think happened when I set the pot. I selected “rice”, then set the time for 10 minutes. BUT, once it came to temperature and displayed the time, it said 12! So, I just unplugged it when there were 2 minutes left, but I just thought that was weird. Any feedback on that one??

    This is an awesome receipe. Just when you think there isn’t enough hot sauce, believe in your receipe and don’t add until you taste! the receipe is perfect just the way it is
