This is a very easy and tasty dish to make. The chicken is sauteed in a medley of vegetables, garlic and basil. It's then served on a bed of pasta.

This has become one of my favorite and best tasting recipes of this sort. However some modifications were made as the original turned out to be a bit bland for my taste. I doubled the garlic salt pepper and basil (and used fresh basil); also I increased the tomato and olive oil portions by 1/2. It turned out to be a mouth-watering flavorful diverse dish--highly recommended. Read More

wasn't a huge fan of this recipe. i followed the recipe and it didn't make enough "sauce" to cover all the noodles. I would have preferred there be more sauce than there was but even then i don't know if i would have been impressed. Read More

This is a hard recipe to rate. It has great potential but as is lacks something. To correct the sauce issue I added about 1/2 cup of chicken stock. There was plenty of sauce. The recipe didn't have much taste though. Since I originally made the recipe because I was looking for something healthy I don't want to add anything like butter or cream to give flavor. I think I may try this again replacing the stock with wine. I did use fresh roma tomatoes too and the lack of flavor may have been because it is still early in the season for tomatoes. Because I am struggling to find heathy recipes I will try this one again. It deserves the chance since it is a good base. Read More

I used lemon olive oil to saute the mushrooms onion and garlic in. I also doubled the garlic. Lemon pepper instead of ground black pepper was another change that I made. To make sure it was very moist I used 2 15 1/2 ounce cans of diced tomatoes including the liquid. The family is very happy tonight they really liked this dish! Read More

Very good and my children (5 7 9)liked it. It satisfied my desire for a simple pasta dish as well as their desire for a rich sauce. I added fresh spinach and white wine to make more sauce. Read More

This recipe was fabulous. I marinated the chicken breast in Italian salad dressing overnight and then tossed the dressing in with the chicken but other than that I stuck to the recipe provided. I highly recommend! Read More

the chicken mixture was too dry to use as a sauce but it was perfect after I added some water. Read More

Other than the onion chopping this is really quick! Using canned tomatoes worked great although I think I would have put them in earlier so they could saute longer with the basil and I think reserving the liquid is a good suggestion. Tasted wonderful! Read More

This was really good! I used more garlic than the recipe called for and used olive oil instead of vegetable oil and my husband and I both loved it! Next time I'll try fresh basil. Read More

I used 3-cheese ravioli for the pasta which complimented the sauce nicely. Very easy to make! Read More
