Usually I only try recipes that have lots of great reviews but I decided to try this one because the ingredients sounded good. Boy am I glad I did! It's fast easy and has a wonderful bright flavor. Husband loved it as well. My additions....one jalepeno chopped two garlic cloves chopped and a little parm cheese at the end. And I also dusted the chicken with a little cayenne before cooking. Obviously we like things spicy! Try this one!! Read More

This is an okay dish but I agree with the others that if made as written it would be a bit bland. It definitely needs some tweaking in my opinion. I ended up adding some white wine and garlic. This recipe is fast and easy and has potential. Read More

Very good and fast-I had dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes. I added about 4 cloves chopped garlic to the oil when sauteing the chicken and seasoned the chunks with a little cajun seasoning and salt and pepper. When I saw there wasn't going to be much sauce for the pasta when the veggies were just about done I removed all and kept it warm added 1 can of chicken broth about 1/2 cup white wine with the lime juice and let that reduce a little. Put chicken and veggies back in and topped with cilantro. Oh-I also added a few pickeled jalapenos with the bell pepper as we like things very spicy. Very tasty! Read More

Loved this! I make it in a flash by cutting up the boneless chicken with scissors over the hot oil then adding the veggies including a generous amount (about 1/3 cup) of jarred minced garlic. I used bottled lime juice and presliced mushrooms. I used some ideas from another recipe on this site Chicken Supreme II and added cream of chicken soup and a little white wine to the skillet when the chicken was cooked. You could also just use some chicken broth wine and a cornstarch slurry. Wow serving this over whole wheat penne pasta it's delicious and done in the time it takes to boil the pasta! Great stuff!

I really liked this. I did stray from the recipe slightly in that I used rotisserie chicken and a little chicken broth and butter made more of a sauce to coat the pasta. Garnished with sour cream this tasted like chicken fajitas with pasta instead of tortillas. Read More

I found this to be a bit bland. I did make a sauce based on other reviews. I used chicken broth white wine and the lime juice and let it simmer down a while. It never really thickened so I tried adding a slurry of cornstarch/water. My kids seemed to like it ok mostly because it was served over pasta:) I think it could be tweaked to add more flavor but I think a creamier sauce would be better. Also I did add about a teaspoon of minced garlic when I was cooking the chicken. Read More
