Reviews for Tuscan Chicken Breasts
"This was deliscious, the flavor of the sauce was perfect. The little touch crushed red pepper was so slight but so present!! The chicken melted in your mouth. The family loved it. Practically licked the pan."
"This did not turn out as I had hoped. The sauce was delicious but the chicken was really tough."
"This was really good. I served it over linguine. I would make this again. This would also be delicious using shrimp instead of chicken."
"Made this for a luncheon today and it was a big hit! Served it with whole grain angel hair pasta. The kitchen smelled wonderful, too. The recipe is easy, but you could also buy a bag of frozenchopped sweet peppers/onions to make it even easier. I will be making this regularly!"
"Great recipe - I took the chicken out of the skillet, put penne pasta in the skillet and tossed. Put in casserole dish, added chicken and then covered with some shredded mozzerella - stuck it in the oven for a few minutes - terrific!!"
