Reviews for Asian Chicken with Pasta
"Good recipe, added some horseradish and soy sauce for added flavor but was yummy!"
"My son and I enjoyed this but we will make a few substitutions to fit our tastes. It seemed to be missing something."
"I thought this was a great dish and way fewer calories than ordering asian delivery! I did however replace the Italian dressing for an Asian sesame ginger vinagarette by wishbone and still used the balsamic. I ommited the ginger since it was in the dressing and thought the asian flavor was perfect! I also added crushed red pepper flakes because I love spicy. Lastly, in order to cut calories and carbs I used spaghetti squash and it tasted wonderful. Definitely going to make it again and I love that it's healthy."
"I have made it several times. Very easy, quick. The only thing I added different is to add more seasoning than what is called for. My family likes seasonings"
"I would have to agree with time2cook. This wasn't the best. It was missing something, but I guess that's why it is considered a "lighter dish"."
"I liked it, but needs a little something to add some more flavor. Not sure what to add. A thicker sauce of some kind would be good."
"After quitting smoking 4 months ago, I gained 20 pounds, so started looking for recipes that were low in fat, yet high in flavor. This recipe fits the bill! I made my own Balsamic Viniagrette (balsamic vinegar, chopped garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil) and fresh chopped ginger (1 tsp) and garlic (2 tsp) instead of the ground.I will make this one again!"
"Another delicious dish. The packaged slaw mix and pre-sliced mushrooms cut prep time. And I added some zucchini from my garden, which really blended nicely. I didn't realize I was out of ginger, so had to leave that out, and I missed it. I think it would have added that extra asian flavor I was looking for."
