I couldn't find garlic base at my local store so I substituted chicken bouillon with some garlic powder. The result was still a restaurant quality meal I thoroughly enjoyed. Read More

this was delicious. I had to take some liberties because garlic base doesn’t exist where I live. So I made my own! Here’s my “garlic base”: in a mortar and pestle thinger, mix 1 heaping scoop of chicken bouillon powder and 2 heaping scoops of prepared chopped garlic (the stuff that comes in the jar). Mash it up real well, then add about 1tsp of garlic powder. Use that instead of the garlic base in the recipe and you’re good to go! I’ll be making this again FOR SURE. So glad I found this recipe.

I made 2 changes, gluten and dairy free. I substituted the water and whipping cream with 1 can of coconut milk, and used gluten free penne. I also didn't add cheese at the end. It came out great, and I can honestly say I didn't miss the cheese. We will definitely being eating this again. Read More

This was a really good easy recipe. I doubled it all and fed a family of 5 with leftovers. I used Walkers jerk seasoning and next time will add more. I also didn't have the garlic base so used chicken stock and added garlic. Very warming but flavorful. Read More

We LOVED this recipie! We will definatly be making again. I did two things differently due to what I had on hand. I did not have the garlic base so I followed others recomendations and used 1 tsp chicken base, 2 tbsp (heaping, I love garlic) minced garlic and 1 tsp garlic powder. Turned out great! The second change was that I only had 1 chicken breast on hand so I cut it smaller and cooked it through. Then cooked everything on pressure for 5 minutes instead of 15 as everything (besides penne) was already cooked completely. Next time that I have everything on hand I'll make as the recipie states, but I am sure it will still be excellent! Read More
