Reviews for Chicken Garden Medley
"Loved this! Made as written but could easily use many other variations of veggies, herbs and spices. Thanks for sharing the recipe! It's great!"
"Great family food. My youngest son especially liked it very much, saying: "This is the kind of simple food I want!" I didn't saute the veggies, however, but just added them with the sauce, since peppers and squash get soggy very easily, and I didn't use angel hair as it clumps a lot and I find it hard to work with. Will definitely be making this again."
"Great dish!! I'm thinking of marinating the chicken to give it more flavor."
"Followed the recipe to a "T"......fabulous! Next time I may add fresh mushrooms and a little fresh basil!!"
"also used whole mike instead of the half/half."
"Will make this again with the changes I made. Added shredded carrots for the green peppers and made Lundberg's wild rice blend since we try to avoid pasta when we can. I used 2 minced garlic and a generous amount of parmesan cheese. Loved by all!"
"This was delicious! I had some fresh herbs accessible from my garden so I added some fresh basil and oregano to the cream sauce and it was great, but I think it would have been good with or without the herbs."
"Used linguine & turned out yummy!~ Theresa"
"This tasted like really good "restaurant food!" Will definitely make again, we all loved it just as written."
"This has always been my daughter’s favorite…and anyone else that’s eaten it! Thank you for the recipe, Linda."
