    I have used this recipe for over a year as one of my WW meals. It is wonderful and so filling. However, if you use Schwan’s Pierogies, they are only one point each and it reduces your points by 2 for 3 Pierogies and the sauce.

    Very good and VERY filling! My whole family enjoyed this one.

  • Kathy

    This recipe used the pierogies very well. The chicken mixture was smooth and very filling.

  • Cindy S

    Marvelous, and very easy. My husband, who does not diet, couldn’t believe how filling this was. I give this a 10.

    This was great! I have had it with different veggies in it and we like it best with broccoli in it. But we have never been too big on peas. Its also very filling or if you have it with a salad. Very good.

    this recipe is very bland. I used Cambpell’s healthy request cream of chicken soup and the whole dish was really tasteless. I would not make this again.

    This is a recipe that we have on our board for over a year. It’s delicious and get’s a 10 from me. Barbo

    This recipe is wonderful for left over chicken! My family loved it, and it will probably become a regular dish. Not one of those WOW dishes that I would serve to guests though. I give this recipe an 8 out of 10.

    This is a wonderful recipe. It’s really hard to believe that it’s low fat.

    We had this for dinner tonight and really enjoyed it. I added a second can of cream of chicken soup which made it extra creamy.

    I made this for my family tonight. My husband and 13 year old daughter both liked it. Of course the 13 year old wanted to know if it could be made with something other than peas. She suggested carrots. It did need a little seasoning since cream of chicken soup is so bland. Other wise it was great. My daughter thought it tasted like chicken pot pie.

    This recipe was very good. I used 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup and chopped green pepper instead of the peas and it turned out wonderfully. I also added about 2 tbsp of grated fresh parmesan cheese over the top. Overall, this was a good recipe and I will make it again.

    this was pretty dry. if i make it again, i’ll use another can of soup. the pierogies were good prepared this way, though!

  • Judi

    My whole family like it. I used an extra can of the 98% ff soup. I am going to try with brocolli next time.

  • goddessmu821

    I liked this, but it was a bit bland.

  • Kathy

    I made this with broccoli and the family loved it.

  • Tina

    Everyone in my family loved this, was very easy and delicious!

  • Sue

    Just made this for dinner. I changed it up little – I added spinach & broccoli instead of peas (blech!) I also added a little bit of red pepper to help with the blandness others commented about. I think it was still too bland – added A LOT of pepper when on my plate.

    Hubby LOVED it. Kids love Pierogies in any form…

    I will cook this again – Will try other options to jazz it up without weighing it down!

  • Maggie

    I love this! I don’t use peas or mushrooms though. I added some cayenne pepper and sauteed onions. I also used a rotisserie chicken already cooked from the grocery store. Makes this SUPER easy. And the flavor from the chicken helps A LOT with the blandness.

  • Dan

    I used double the musrooms and soup and added onions and garlic. Fantastic!

  • jennifer

    anyone know what the serving amoutn is…how many perogies? thx.

  • Tiffany

    Why not just eat Chicken and Cheese Pierogies. I found the best at Dobry Jej Pierogies . They are delicious and no cooking or cleaning up the mess!
