This is one of those great "What do I have in my cabinet" meals. This was really good and easy. Like another reviewer I did add powdered garlic for cooking the chicken and in the sauce. I used canned mushrooms and omitted the black olives (didn't have any) and the jalapenos (didn't want any. The next time I make I will add the black olives and serve jalapenos on the side. Read More

Ok I made this and NO ONE I repeat no one in my family liked it. I'm gonna make it one more time with different spaghetti sauce and different alfredo sauce - maybe I used bad quality sauce? I'm wondering why nobody liked it as this recipe got some pretty good reviews! Anyways wish me luck! Read More

This was absolutely the best pasta I have ever had! My husband doesn't like peppers so I omitted them. I also added a whole lot of garlic to the chicken as I was sauteeing it and even more to the sauce as it simmered. It was absoltuely delicious. This will be a weekly staple recipe in my house. Tastes great as leftovers too! Read More

I love this dish at our local "Themed" resturant and my son enjoys it as well. I used a simple jar sauce for the red and alfreado to simplify the recipe. Read More

The whole family really liked this. I particularly like the red cherry peppers. It gives the sauce a nice sweet and vinegar undertone. It also reheats nicely for leftovers. I choose this recipe over another recipe for Chicken Riggies on this website because of ease of prepartion. I was not at all disappointed Read More

We really enjoyed this recipe especially my teenage son. We left out the jalapeno peppers since my younger boys doesn't like hot stuff. We had to double the recipe. It is very good and I've already made it twice! Read More
