Reviews for Creamy Chicken and Pasta
"Loved it. Didn't use the capers and added mushrooms and broccoli. Was very good."
"I rarely comment on recipes but I had to this time. The capers completely ruined this for me! Unless you know for sure that you LOVE them....dont do it! I made it a second time because I had all the stuff....and it was delish. I threw in a few handfuls of dried cranberries and pumpkin pie spice and it was amazing!"

"This recipe was the best pasta dish I've ever made and I've made a lot over the years. I embellished a little and garnished with a few finely chopped chives, delicious."
"Excellent flavor!!! I used shrimp instead of chix. Will try using chix next time. Would've liked more sauce for the pasta"
"Very tasty pasta dish! I'm glad I doubled the recipe because everybody wanted seconds!!"
"This was fantastic. I used wine instead of chicken broth (which I believe makes all the different) and added 1/4th of a diced red bell pepper and 2 ribs of celery but at a slant for crunch. The capers I feel were necessary and great. I steamed 2 1/2 chicken breasts for this. Seasoned them first and steamed for 20 minutes. I used the broth from the steaming as the 1/3 C. of water. Simple, easy and raves from my guests. Tastiest pasta dish I've had in a long time."
