Reviews for Greek Chicken Pasta
"I agree with another reviewer on this, it was just okay for me. I love all of the ingredients, but it wasn't much of a sauce. I thought the flavors would really pop for me, but they didn't. And it was actually a pretty expensive dish to make, so I'll probably skip it next time."
"Although the flavors were good and it has my favorites like greek olives and artichokes the texture was not great. In the picture it looks like a light pasta dish - what I got was sticky sauce that overpowered the olives, artichokes and tomatoes. I am not in a hurry to try this again but when I do I may skip the butter/onions/chicken broth/flour and try tossing in olive oil."
"I found this to be a bit bland, but not bad. I didn't have artichokes. Maybe that was the issue. Thanks for the recipe!"
"Yum! Good warm or cold and even tastier the next day. Followed the recipe exactly other than substituted 1/4 c. of sun dried tomato pesto for the sun dried tomatoes, as I had it on hand. I think that substitution made it even tastier as the flavor was then distributed to every bite."
"Great warm or cold!"
"I made this when it was first published in 2010, and it has become a favorite. Instead of chicken, I have used shrimp several times with equal success. And, at times instead of the chicken broth, I have used white wine. Quick, easy and versatile."
"Loved it! We're not fans of artichoke, so I substituted small pieces of blanched thin asparagus!I also had a pound of boneless/skinless chicken breast in the fridge, so pre-cooked it in a Rosemary/Garlic seasoning.Hubby and I LOVED it - promptly inhaled :D"
"I am a subscriber to Taste of home and I tried this recipe and my family loved it. I don't like greek olives, but used black olives instead. My mom has moved in due to health issues and threw my book away that had the recipe in it and I am so glad I could go on line and find it. This is a great dish."
"This is one of my favorites - thanks Sue!"
"This was DELICIOUS! I didn't chop up the tomatoes well enough, and ended up with big, too-flavorful bites of tomato, so be sure to chop it before you mix it in.I left out the olives, and it still turned out great. Be sure to chop up the artichoke and sun dried tomatoes really well, and use a big pot!"
"Lots of taste and really easy to make. Everyone in my family enjoyed this recipe (even with the tomatoes and artichoke hearts in it, usually not their favorites). I did not use the olives and I used boiled chicken breasts instead. Will make this one again!"
"My family loves this recipe.....however I do not use the store bought chicken...I know the idea is for a quick meal however I boiled chicken breasts with the bone in and then I chop up the chicken because it is so much more moist and tender...delicious"
"We love this recipe, however I do no use rotisserie chicken... I realize the idea is quick but I boil chicken breasts w/bone and chop off the bone as more moist and flavorable.....delicious."
"Loved it. Quick and simple to make."
"We LOVE this recipe and we make it over and over. It's all about the Quality of the ingredients you buy. You will have to spend a little more but it's so worth it. We really like using the smoked sundried tomatoes instead of the oil packed and we use the herb feta. Tons of flavor and is even better the next day for lunch!"
"This recipe was super simple and great tasting. We DO NOT do onions, so I omitted those. Also, we just baked some boneless chicken breasts with italian seasoning and chopped that into cubes. My husband and I loved it and we will be making it over and over again!"
"I am so glad I found this recipe again!! I made it last summer (2010) and the whole family raved about it! My youngest (15) has been asking me to make it again, but I misplaced the magazine I got it out of and, couldn't remember which one it was!! This is a great meal and is one of those that tastes even better the second day!"
"Yummm! The only two tiny things I did different was grill boneless breasts sprinkled with this seasoning http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/greek-seasoning/Detail.aspx and I didn't have feta. Loved it!"
"This was pretty good in spite of the smell of it. It wasn't hard to put together and did have a lot of flavor. I'm not sure it was for me though - I left out the olives and replaced the sun dried tomatoes with regular tomatoes and also used seasoned baked chicken breast instead of the rotisserie chicken."
"Pretty tasty! I added some spinach to it which may have made it less "saucy" than it normally would have been, but it was still really good. Gotta love the sun-dried tomato, artichoke heart, feta and olive combo. My sweetie doesn't like olives so i left them out of the dish, and just sprinkled them on top of mine. I also added a few of cloves of garlic, and I would probably season it a little more next time. Obviously no salt is needed with the feta and olives, but probably some black pepper, maybe some greek seasoning. Definitely a keeper!"
"We just didn't like this recipe. It is easy to make though."
"I unfortunately did not think this was as wonderful as the other reviews. It was lacking in flavor. We added crushed red pepper, oregano, and other seasonings. Still wasn't enough. I think I might try it again with either a dash of nutmeg or balsamic vinegar. My husband and I have been cooking for 25 years and it was just lacking in flavor."
"absolutely LOVED it!! Would make it for an event!"
"Wonderful dish and very easy. The ingredients are a little pricey but worth it. Going to make this often."
"My daughter (16) saw this in the magazine and wanted to make it. Oh, WOW, did we all love it! She has made this at least 6 times and we always enjoy every last bite!"
"This has become a new favorite recipe for me! Very tasty."
"Tastes great and easy to prepare!"
"substituted spinach for the artichokes for hubby, but regretted it because I didn't like it as much as I thought. Will have to try again and cook as directed."
"This one is a keeper ! So easy to make, and what a great flavour."
"This was fairly easy, and a break out of my normal routine. I love all those yummy greek things, olives, arti hearts, feta, tomatoes, my husband, typically not. But this recipe he loved, it was his favorite dinner all week!"
"This is a delicious, fast recipe for a weeknight dinner. My husband loved it!"
"This dish is delicious!I will definitely be making it again."
"I made this for my family, everyone loved it! I added a clove of crushed garlic (could use a teaspoon of minced) with the onions. Didn't have olives and used dried parsley instead of fresh, yet it was still excellent. New favorite!"
"This was SO good! I too omitted the black olives. The artichokes gave this dish such a refreshing flavor. My Husband who "thought" he didn't like artichokes loved this too."
"This was wonderful! Even my husband liked it. I was skeptical after mixing it all together, but broiling it is what made it excellent. Will make many more times."
"This recipe is easy and delicious! I also skipped broiling it, instead I put it in a 9x13 and let it sit in the oven for about 20 minutes. I used sliced black olives instead of the green ones. I also won't use the sun-dried tomatoes, hubby isn't a fan. Even with all the changes, this recipe is great and will last us all week!"
"This recipe is FABULOUS! It tastes like something I ordered at a high end restaurant! I did not include the greek olives and baked boneless skinless chicken breasts in Italian dressing and then cubed for the recipe. I even cut the butter down a bit and it was still amazing. This recipe is a BIG TIME keeper! THANK YOU!"
"Just beginning to like feta. Was a little strong but with the olives-YUM."
"Our family really enjoyed this. My oven is broken so I skipped broiling it. It was delicious and easy to make. We will make this again for sure!"
