Wow wow wow! This is one superb dish! I used sliced black olives instead of chopped and also seasoned the chicken breasts with some seasoning salt and black pepper. Used bottled lemon juice as I didn;t have fresh on hand. Also flatten out your chicken breasts before frying. What an excellent meal. Cannot wait to make this again for friends. Probably one of my top five recipes from Allrecipes.
I was really impressed with the flavor of this recipe. I only made two changes (due to a lack of ingredients on hand): I left out the olives (don't like them anyway) and substituted chopped cashews for the pine nuts. My husband thought it was too sweet and suggested that next time we use double the tomatoes and half the raisins. I really like the sweetness of the raisins though so I guess it depends on how sweet you like your sauce. I also cut the chicken into strips before I cooked it just because the pieces I had were really large and it came out just fine. I will do this again with some sort of compromise between the raisins and tomatoes so that my husband doesn't have a little pile of raisins on the side of his plate by the time dinner is over. This would be a great dish to serve for a dinner party and you could easily make the sauce in advance even the night before which is what I think I'll do next time.
This has great flavor. I would double the sauce next time. I call this a dry pasta vs. a saucy pasta. I would also decrease the pasta. My changes were-decrease raisins to 1/2 cup do not drain the tomatoes and added 1/2 cup chicken broth. I did use chicken tenders. I did not think the olives gave it much flavor.
This was really really good! The only thing I would have changed is to use chicken cut into thin filets or strips instead of the breast half - took too long and not as tender. I also added about 1 cup of chopped fresh tomatoes. Great recipe!
I've made this twice now and I LOVE IT. I pretty much followed the recipe except I did without the pepper and olives. As the other reviewers said the sauce is a little dry to DON'T drain it. Maybe next time I'll try putting some white wine or something to give it a little extra sauce or chicken brother. Otherwise very good (try tossing the pasta with lemon juice)
Great recipe not to hard and very professional. It tasted restaurant quality. Next time I will use six breasts and bump up the sauce a little bit with the same amount of pasta making it six servings. Or I might cook less pasta.
This was AMAZING! Wish I could give it 10 stars! This dish is exploding with flavor! Wonderful sweet/hot taste. Only thing I did different is marinate (in italian dressing) and grill the chicken instead of pan frying. You will not be disappointed!
I was so skeptical before I started this recipe that I'm still surprised that I made it! It was really good. I didn't make any significant changes except for switching chicken tenders for chicken breasts. I definetely recommend this recipe!
I liked it my husband did not- he said raisins belong in desserts. I thought the sweet/spicy was a nice balance though I would have appreciated more lemon in the chicken. I think next time I will marinate it in the lemon or add some lemon zest.
I really like how the chicken tastes - being soaked in lemon juice before being cooked. Makes me want to do this to all the chicken I make! But the raisin-tomato sauce is just alright. Kind of took away from the fantastic chicken taste a little...
