Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I love chicken and saw this and had to make. It was fantastic. I got carried away and added a llittle more ranch dressing. One little problem was it was hard to find the dressing. Had to go to a couple of stores.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from TONS of leftovers Made this today for my family of 4. I used 4 (larger) chicken breasts and thawed them a little first and trimmed the fat first. We used southwest chipotle dressing instead because we didn't have the cilantro lime one. The sauce was really good! I shred the chicken and added the penne pasta but it seemed like the chicken to pasta ratio was heavy on the chicken side; however, when I put leftovers away there was lots of noodles in the bottom of the pot so maybe I didn't stir it up enough. Helpful tip: I would easily cut this recipe in half and there would be plenty to feed the 4 of us. I now have 4 tupperware containers full of it! I think it would be good on salads and on wraps and sandwiches (these are plans for leftovers for next several days).
