Chicken Strips Milano

A dear friend shared this recipe a few years ago. Since then, I’ve prepared this garlicky and delightful entree for both family dinners and get-togethers. —Lara Priest, Gansevoort, New York

    I made this recipe and followed the recipe exactly. The chicken was really good. I loved the flavor. The pasta was not outstanding. My husband complained that it didn't have enough flavor and I would have to agree. I loved the chicken so I might try it again but with different noodles.

    My family enjoyed this. Make sure to dredge chicken in flour first, then eggs - it makes a difference. Pasta doesn't have standout flavor but it seems to complement the chicken nicely for an overall mild-flavored yet filling main course.

    I made this for my children. They ate the chicken and left the pasta. I'm on a diet so I couldnt taste the pasta but I had a bite of the chicken and it was delicious to me. Followed the recipe to the T..

    Don't think I'll try again. We had this last night for dinner but it was just so-so. The chicken had a decent taste (I wasn't sure if the dredging process was right or if it was a mis-print to flour first THEN dip in egg??) but the pasta had almost no flavor and it seemed very dry even after I added more olive oil. Sorry - I wanted this recipe to work out, it looked good.

    Tastes too 'eggy.' Might be better if dipped in egg before coating with seasoned flour, but not interested in trying, again.

    I agree with previous reviewer, the chicken had a nice taste, but the pasta with oil and seasonings really didnt have much taste, I thought about adding some pesto sauce but didnt have any.

    I wish there was a double rating system for some of these recipes. When I make a recipe for the first time, I try to follow exactly. Hubby & I agree. The chicken was excellent. The pasta not so. The pasta would definitely be better with a regular scampi sauce. The recipe also says 'pour' garlic mixture over linguini'. What's to pour with the minimal amount of oil used. Had to boost that. Maybe should have used chicken broth instead of oil. 5 stars for the chicken, 0 stars for the pasta. Sorry.
