I thought that this salad was pretty bland. I had to add a lot of salt and seasoning to it to make it flavorful. I liked that it was pretty easy though. Read More

Pretty tasty though I did take some liberty with the recipe. I used a mix of pastas spirals egg noodles and whole wheat egg noodles for more of a salad feel. I cooked the broccoli in a separate pan with a thin layer of water. I never boil veggies because it leeches the nutrients. I used most of a fresh lemon and a liberal amount of pepper on the chicken as it cooked in a separate pan. When I mixed it all together it still wasn't strong enough so I added a great deal more pepper lemon salt some fresh cilantro and a healthy dose of olive oil. Now that's tasty! Next time I'll try cooking the broccoli and chicken in the same pan for a while to mix flavors. Read More

I like it too. I cooked everything separate for 10 minutes then combined in a large bowl with marinara. Prep time: 15 min; Cook time: 10 min - Broccoli (cut in small florets) - Chicken breasts (seasoned with Lemon Pepper) - Pasta (Barilla farfalle) - Warmed some Marinara while slicing the chicken into small chunks. Throwing everything into the bowl and mix with serving utensils. Bonus: Serve with garlic bread. Read More

Once you've added your seasoning and oil to taste I think this is REALLY good. But you do have to like pepper or forget it. Also add halved cherry tomoates for color or other veggie of coice. Suggest using tricolored pasta for color if no tomatoes available. Read More

I chopped the raw chicken into bite-sized pieces sprinkled liberally with lemon-pepper (aka use lots!) and added fresh chopped garlic and salt. Fast and easy but missing something. Read More
