I just wanted to say this is a WONDERFULLLLLL recipe! It's a lot easier to prepare the manicotti with the shells uncooked! I made for my mom on mother's day and it was just perfect!! I wasn't sure if I should try since no one has rated it, but I am glad I did. I impressed the entire family enjoyed including my mother an awesome cook!! Ps: wouldn't change a thing!

This recipe gets rave reviews from me and my family. One improvement I've made is to shred the cooked chicken in a food processor first - it makes the stuffing of the shells easier. This recipe is a taste sensation! I make it for company when I want to impress.

The prep time is way off. It takes at least 20 minutes just to stuff the shells. Next time I think I'll add some red pepper flakes to the chicken mixture. Also, rather than using the sauce in the recipe I think using an alfredo sauce would be better. The Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce on this site would be great with this recipe. I also layered the bottom of our dishes with red sauce for flavor contrasts. The combination of the flavors was really good.
