Colorful Chicken Pasta Recipe

I'm tired at the end of the workday, so fast meals are always appreciated. I came up with this pasta dish one night using ingredients we happened to have on hand. I knew it was a success when my husband, who doesn't even like chicken, couldn't stop eating it!
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

"Ordinary, bland. I probably simmered it too long with the lid on also so there wasn't enough sauce. My husband had to add salsa to eat it. I think it needs some garlic to flavor it."

"This was good. I did make some changes. I did not use the lemon pepper seasoning. My husband is not a lemon fan. Since I had chopped onion in the recipe already, I did not use the onion powder. I used fresh basil instead of dried basil and I also added some mushrooms."

"Delicious! I made one mistake by simmering for 10-12 mins instead of 6-8 with the lid on. I am an experienced cook and this really should not have made much of a difference. However, this short amount of extra time really soaked up a lot of the sauce. It was still a great meal but I would definitely recommend sticking with the 6-8 mins time frame."

"Very good! I had about 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice in my fridge, so I decided to throw it was amazing!"
