If my family could give this 6 stars we would! The kids especially loved it and couldn’t wait to eat it after the way it smelled while cooking. I served it over angel hair pasta. Read More

This meal sounded great, but to us, it had no flavor at all. Will not make again. Read More

This was so yummy! My city has been hit hard by panic buying so I had to make a few omissions because items aren’t available. I did not have flour, just did without. I did not have stock, but the zucchini and cherry tomatoes released plenty of liquid. One thing that’s plentiful in the store was sun dried tomato pesto - I’ll probably go back and get some more now that I’ve found a great recipe. Family loved it, it gave us a comfort meal at a time we very much need comfort. Thank you for the recipe! Read More

This was a hit! I decided to bake the chicken separately, so I made a few changes. I started with olive oil and one yellow onion in a pan with the garlic. Then added 2 cubed zucchini and 1 cubed yelllow squash. Also threw in 2 bell peppers and some spinach with the grape tomatoes because I had them on hand. Finally, I added 2 spoonfuls of cornstarch to the chicken stock before adding it so that I could get a thicker sauce to serve over angel hair. Overall, the ingredients all worked together incredibly well and it was a colorful meal. Read More

Great recipe but needs a little kick. Will add some heat next time. Also sauce needs to be thickened a little bit. Read More

This was great! I pretty much followed the recipe, only I always spice up the chicken with my own concoction of seasonings no matter what the recipe it is (I always use paprika, usually garlic powder unless the recipe calls for fresh, season all, and Italian seasonings...it takes a lot to over spice it. You can get away with all different seasonings. I threw in some spinach and it came out scrumptiously. Read More

Easy recipe and tastes like an experienced chef has made it. I didn’t have zucchini on hand so I used broccoli florets and I didn’t have sun dried tomato pesto so I used regular basil pesto instead. Tasted amazing! Read More

This is a great recipe. I love Italian food and this was quick and easy. I did add extra Italian spices and used Parmesan cheese (we didn’t have mozzarella). The pasta cooked fine in the liquid, no need to cook separately. Will definitely make this again. Read More

Greetings! In a very late response to Teena regarding a tomato pesto substitute, I've made the recipe using tomato paste and additional seasonings. Read More
