Reviews for Chicken with Fettuccine
"My family loves this and I do too because it's quick and easy. If I don't have fresh tomatoes I add a can of stewed or Italian tomatoes."
"I made this for dinner last night, it was really good :o) I don't care for tomatoes so added broccoli instead. I also added a little lemon juice and white wine."
"This is one of my favorite recipes. I love to make it in the summer when I have a ton of basil from the garden. I have a large family so I double it. Everyone raves about it. It's quick, easy and delicious. Taste like something you would get at a restaurant."
"This was scrumptious! Added more tomato and basil and more cream to make it creamier. But the flavor was excellent. Restaurant quality dish."
"What a great recipe! My whole family including teenage boys loved it!"
