    Very good. Made extra sauce. Seasoned chicken and veg with garlic powder. Added more garlic and sauce. Thickened the sauce with flour.

    I make this at least once a fortnight. It's not bland at all, I really love the bright colors in the dish. My husband loves it and always asks for more. We don't use boneless chicken breasts very often, only because whole chicken is cheaper and hubby loves nibbling off the carcass. LOL.

    Tasty. Only complaint was that I had to cook for what seemed like forever to get the carrots tender. I eventually covered the pan because they just kept tasting crunchy every time I tried them. Will make again!

    The flavor was great but I wish there was something to hold the pasta together. The liquid in the chicken was just soaked up by the pasta. I'd like something a little creamier. Will adapt this next time

    This was quick, easy, and only required a handful of ingredients. It was also delicious!

    Try with roasted chicken from grocery. I'm going to also try with herb roasted.

    Delicious and easy. Not bland at all. I wish it had just a few more veggies. Next time I might add mushrooms in addition to the carrots and broccoli.
