Reviews for Colorful Chicken Pasta
"This was good. I did make some changes. I did not use the lemon pepper seasoning. My husband is not a lemon fan. Since I had chopped onion in the recipe already, I did not use the onion powder. I used fresh basil instead of dried basil and I also added some mushrooms."
"Delicious! I made one mistake by simmering for 10-12 mins instead of 6-8 with the lid on. I am an experienced cook and this really should not have made much of a difference. However, this short amount of extra time really soaked up a lot of the sauce. It was still a great meal but I would definitely recommend sticking with the 6-8 mins time frame."
"Very good! I had about 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice in my fridge, so I decided to throw it in...it was amazing!"
