Reviews forHoney-Orange Chicken and Pasta
"A neighbor served this recipe to us and we really enjoyed it. An added plus for DH is the lack of a red tomato base.Question: Is this a "Stand-Alone" type dish OR should a side dish be served with it? What should be served if a side dish is needed?"
"This recipe is packed with flavor! We omitted the olives.~ Theresa"
"My oldest daughter (she is my picky eater) and i loved this recipe. although my husband and youngest daughter didnt care for it as much"
"I didn't think this recipe was anything special. It definitely had good flavor. I omitted the olives and the onions and added cashews to it. This will probably be a one time thing."
"My family enjoyed this dish; however, they did point out that they would prefer more sauce (I'll double the sauce next time). They also stated they would like to try it with rice instead of linguine. I was absolutely surprised that my kids liked it, 13, 14, and 15 year-olds. Will include this recipe on the monthly menu for our family."
"I made this tonight. It was easy to make. My husband and I loved it. I will be making this again."
