"We make this a lot. We have a lot of chicken on-hand pretty much all the time (we buy by the case) and use the different marinated breasts with this recipe (sometimes un-marinated too.) Sometimes we'll add some extra seasoning like Italian or whatever else we have on-hand. This recipe is a staple in our house (probably made every other week.) The Bisquick mixture does stick to the pan often (even with cooking spray and butter) but enough of it stays on the chicken to keep us happy."

"We enjoyed it but want to try different stir-fry sauces because that can really dictate how well we like this dish. Used frozen stir-fry veggies but would rather go with fresh next time. Broke the Ramen noodles up too much...should keep them a little longer. Easy to make and will make again."

"Made for Easter brunch and the group really liked them. I tasted more of the pastry/crust more than anything so I didn't love them but they were good overall. I think I took longer than the suggested prep time because I had to cook the bacon and it took me awhile to spread the Bisquick into the muffin pans so that was disappointing (especially doing this late at night when I was tired.) I only used a small amount of green onion and reserved 6 or so of the quiches for no-bacon. Also used cheddar instead of swiss (not a big fan of swiss) and that was good. Since they were a big hit with the family, I will make again."

"Good overall but I didn't love the stir-fry sauce I chose (Tsing Tao) so will try another. Our store didn't have packages of fresh stir-fry veggies and I didn't want to gather individual fresh veggies to cut myself (didn't have the time) so I grabbed a frozen pack of veggies. Will try fresh next time. Used just 1 tbsp of oil and that was plenty. Ramen noodles were a good touch but I think I crushed them too much as they were tiny bits of noodles in the end. Will make again though as it was good enough but will make the mentioned changes."

"Delicious: yes. Easy to decorate: not so much. We decorated half in pink and half in light blue (my son likes blue.) I couldn't find candy for the eyes and nose so I used pink and blue decorating gel. That went ok but not as cute as the candy in the picture. Decorating with the chocolate jimmies was tough...they were different sizes (sometimes very tiny) and I could have used tweezers because they just didn't line up nicely as the whiskers. The marshmallows were SO sticky once cut open that they stuck to my fingers more than the cupcake so no way were they going to stand up on end like in the picture. To get them off my fingers I had to pry them and push them down into the frosting. And I couldn't find pink sugar but nobody cared about that. Everybody thought they were adorable and yummy, so overall a success."
