The chicken marinade was very very good. However once the salad was mixed the mayonaise and sour cream didn't mix well with the flavor we thought. Read More

I made this for an office potluck and everyone kept telling me how much they loved it. I omitted the plum sauce because my local store didn't have any but no one seemed to notice. I made the dish the night before and will increase the amount of sauce for the pasta next time as most of it got absorbed overnight. Read More

My husband liked his warm to where the cheese and all were melted. I chose to eat my cold but were very good. The avocado added a fresh element but I think even something like tomatoes could have been added. Overall a good recipe and different from the "norm". I do wish you could do something with the leftover marinade for a sauce or add extra fresh basil at the end. Hated seeing all those flavors gone. Read More
