This recipe was quite excellent. A few changes to this and it turned out really well. I prepared the chicken as directed with the addition of fresh cracked pepper and added home made chicken broth to it about a cup and a half. To the vegetables i added mushroom and onion and stir fried them for a few minutes until they were still crispy yet hot. All the while the angel hair was cooking as this dish is quite fast once you get done with the chicken. Added the vegetables to the chicken/broth combo tossed them then simmered for about three minutes. Drained pasta tossed with some olive oil and then dumped the vegetable/chicken mixture on top. Added some fresh vine ripened tomatos chopped into small pieces and grated fresh parmesian cheese on top. Then when people served they grated a bit more cheese (not much actually) salt cracked pepper... and it turned out perfectly. My mom who enjoys my cooking said this was the best thing I have made yet. Made a huge pot a pound of pasta pretty much tripled this recipe and it was all gone by the next morning. One more thing... to increase the flavor use ALOT more basil (fresh) than suggested here. I used nearly a cup and a half. Simmered half of it with the chicken and the other half i sprinkled on right before serving. You dont need heavy cheese or cream sauces if you try it this way. Read More

This is the 1st time I sent in a review becuase I felt the need to let others know. This was not good at all. No one in my family liked this. It was dry. It had no flavor. Read More

This was easy. I altered the amounts somewhat and added onion garlic and a red bell pepper. I would make it again. Read More

We all liked this very much! I added some chopped onions to the chicken saute and when cooking the broccoli I added 1/2 red and 1/2 green bell pepper chopped. Used 1 14.5oz can of broth which was the perfect amt. A nice light tasting lunch and tastes much healthier than the cream-based pasta dishes. Will make again! Read More

This was delicious. I didn't use the carrots but tossed in red and green pepper and mushrooms. I also used a little bit more broth than asked for but the flavours really mixed well together. I used minced garlic and instead of angel hair pasta I used spaghettini. It smells divine when cooking and tastes even better. I have been looking for a pasta sauce that is herb and broth based and this is PERFECT! Thanks A. Read More

I have served this to my family over and over and they love it just as it is. I also have served this with a jar of Alfredo sauce mixed in for a little creamy consistancy and might add my family prefers it with the alfredo sauce even more. Either way you fix this recipe its 5 star. (Use fresh veggies and experiment with snow peas mushrooms as well as broccoli and carrots you can't go wrong with this versatile recipe.) Read More
