Reviews for Angel Hair Pasta with Chicken
"The flavor was great but I wish there was something to hold the pasta together. The liquid in the chicken was just soaked up by the pasta. I'd like something a little creamier. Will adapt this next time"
"This was quick, easy, and only required a handful of ingredients. It was also delicious!"
"Try with roasted chicken from grocery. I'm going to also try with herb roasted."
"Delicious and easy. Not bland at all. I wish it had just a few more veggies. Next time I might add mushrooms in addition to the carrots and broccoli."
"Excellent! The whole family loved it!"
"This was easy to prepare and very tasty."
"I made this for myself when my husband was working out of town. Very easy and tasty! Loved it and will make it again......maybe when the hubby is around, lol! Might keep it just for me!!"
"We really liked this recipe and that's saying a lot considering my husband doesn't normally like pasta dishes. I left the carrots out since my husband doesn't like them."
"Woops I meant to say I used parsley in place of the basil."
