This meal tastes like one you'd be served at a restaurant. The flavor combination was just right. The only change I made was using sundried tomatoes packed in oil. I added them when I added the broth, wine, & spices - it wasn't too oily. I used a combination of chicken broth & white wine. I will definitely add this to our regular meal rotation.

This dish was delicious!!! I did double the sauce recipe, as some of the reviews suggested. I didn't have sun dried tomatoes, so just omitted them. Even my 3 year old granddaughter loved it!! Will definitely make this again!!

As the recipe was, I found the taste of the sun dried tomatoes a bit overpowering and it was too dry. Increased both the wine and broth to 1/2 cup each and added some chopped fresh tomatoes just before serving, tossed in. That gave it a 'brightness' and was very flavorful. (tried it with some sauteed spinach also, in addition to the chopped fresh tomatoes...nice)

It was good, but needed more sauce.

I used leftover chicken that was already cooked, which cut down on the orep time, but also probably made it less tasty.

I'd definitely make this recipe again. It was pretty quick to make and I had all of the ingredients on hand. I added the sun dried tomatoes when I added the chicken broth instead of soaking them. And I added some of the pasta water so it wouldn't be dry for leftovers. The flavors were great, just enough spice.

This is a really tasty dish. I use oil packed sun-dried tomatoes and it comes out amazing!

This is an amazing dish! We loved it. We opted to use oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes and were very happy with the results. It added a nice shine and punch of flavor. We also added more chicken and mushrooms. Definitely love this recipe! Thank you for sharing! - Field Editor

Love this dish. We use a smaller pasta, like mini penne.
