Reviews for Makeover Greek Chicken Penne
"I followed the recipe and loved it."
"To cut back on the sodium, i used fresh artichoke (baked in the oven), black olives, and made my own Greek seasonings without salt. Will definitely make again using my substitutions."
"Tasty recipe but sodium too high for us so I substituted black olives and half feta/half cubed part skim mozzarella second time I made it. Still great but not so salty. Popular whenever I serve it."
"Love this recipe! So light and fresh!"
"We loved it! I added more olives the second time. I got a recipe for Greek spice online. Great mix of flavor. My husband doesn't care for artichokes, but he loved this recipe."
"Very good recipe! I didn’t have the sun-dried tomatoes, I used a fresh tomato, diced and added it last, heating through. I also used almost a full can of black olives drained and sliced. Next time I’m going to add fresh spinach. There are many ways this recipe can be modified."
"Would not make it with that amount of Sodium in each serving. Where is all the sodium coming from? What is Greek Seasoning?"
"This looks really good and not bad on the calories, but omgosh what about the sodium. I could never try this recipe because of that."
"Great receipe. Easy to make and good as leftover"
"Excellent recipe!! Loved the flavor. I used the store bought roasted chicken from Sams Club."
