    Quick & Easy! I used broccoli slaw (from the produce area), substituted milk for the water & added extra seasoning.

    Very good and easy. I Used the Tyson pretty cooked chicken cubs wich made it really easy. I'm disabled and never know when I might not feel like cooking from scratch. I can keep all these ingredients in the freezer or cupboard to make when I have a bad day. The only thing differentl I did was added Xtra seasoning. We like a lot of garlic and seasoning though. Thank you so much for quick and easy meal.oh ya serve with garlic bread.yum

    I made this for dinner last night and we loved it. It was flavorful, hearty and nuritious. I left out the lemon juice which would have brightened the flavor and stirred in the parmesan. I will definiely make this again.

    it wasnt bad but lacked some flavor. i tweaked it by cooking some onions and fresh garlic with the chicken breast and adding a few dashes of franks hot sauce into the sauce. flavor achieved! i cut and steamed fresh broccoli, carrots and cauliflower to use up some community co-op produce. also i changed the pasta to garden rigatoni and used coconut milk rather than water. i know, its like this is a whole new recipe, not much of a review, sorry.
