I've made this many times and it has always been delicious! I change up the type of pasta depending on who will be eating the meal. Read More

The recipe itself has a few flaws. It says 1 1/2 lemon zest...tbsp or tsp? Way to much pasta. I only added just 1/2 the box and it was quite ample. I used lemon rosemary spice blend to cook chicken in. I just used olive oil to cook it, spraying both sides w/ olive oil seems unnecessary. step 2 is confusing as there is no listing for "lemon pepper" in the ingredients. While the end flavor is fine, this recipe is just confusing. Read More

Lemon made all the difference. I use lemon pepper and my husband said it was the best I've ever made! Read More

This was pretty good. Very lemony I think I will cut down on the lemon juice the next time I make it. Also way too many noodles I only put half of them in in. But in general pretty tasty. Read More

This was good but just a little to lemony for my family. I followed the recipe except I cut the chicken into bit size pieces and I used fresh broccoli instead of froze. I par-steamed the broccoli first, then followed the rest of the instructions.The flavors were good except it was too lemony. Next time I’ll cut down the lemon juice and zest. Read More

Glad I looked at the reviews - made the recommended changes (less pasta and no oil spray). I actually forgot the lemon (!) and I used the AR 'Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce' recipe (which was both!) and enjoyed! If you are a little creative this is a very good base recipe. Read More
