"Only change I made to this recipe was to cut up the chicken into smaller pieces so it would stretch further and I did add some parm instead of the feta - but love this"

"This is just spaghetti with chicken in it. The sauce has a fairly sour taste to it and the feta cheese doesn't do it any favors. I would have preferred parmesan cheese instead."
