Awesome flavor quick and simple to make. I did use 2 cans of basil garlic and oregano diced tomatoes with their juices instead of fresh tomatoes other than that I followed the recipe. The only reason I gave this a 4 stars is because the sauce was watery maybe I will use less of the juices and let it reduce before serving. I will definately be making this again.(Update: I did make this again and still used 2 cans of basil garlic and oregano diced tomatoes but drained the juices from one can and then while cooking I let the sauce reduce until it was thick enough and not watery.)

I did not care for this recipe. As I started making it I started realizing it may not taste very good. The recipe lacked as sort of taste other than the salty taste of tomatoes. I really disliked this recipe. You may just be better off cooking chicken and adding pasta sauce. I was hoping for a wonderful valentine's day dinner and it tasted like I cooked pasta and ate it plain. Read More

I love this recipe. I used fresh garden tomatoes tripled the garlic added dried oregano and omitted salt. Because the tomato mixture doesn't really make a sauce I added 1 cup of white wine and just under a cup of chicken broth. Let everything simmer and it was simply delicious and light. The grated parmesan cheese is an essential finishing touch. I will definitely include this dish in my regular rotation. Thanks! Read More

This was very tasty. I didn't have fresh tomatoes on hand so I added a 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes. I'm sure this is even better with fresh tomatoes. If using canned tomatoes I think 1 tsp. sugar would help cut the tang of the tomatoes. My husband enjoyed this so I'll make this again! Read More

I absolutely LOVED this!!! (and so did the rest of the girls!) I have to admit that i didnt really follow the measurements at all i just kind of went guesstimated! I used a good amount of onions & chopped garlic cloves as well as hot pepper flakes. I also used diced tomatoes from a can and i thought it was perfect. Next time I will probably marinate the chicken in olive oil & fresh basil to give it more flavor. Other than that not only did it taste fantastic but it looked fabulous as well!! (it even was good as leftovers the next day!!!) I made this again and this time marinated the chicken overnight in Sun Dried Tomato dressing. It was a great touch! Also I used Hunt's diced tomatoes with Basil Garlic & Oregeno flavor it definelty contributes to the overall taste Read More

We like basil so I put in extra -- probably around 1 1/2 cups. I'll probably use a red pepper flakes or a sprinkle of cayenne next time. I think our hot pepper sauce has lost its kick so this dish didn't have any peppery zip but the overall flavor was great. I don't think this would have been nearly as good with canned tomatoes so we will save this recipe and make it again during fresh tomato season. I can also see either substituting shrimp or tofu for the chicken or leaving it out altogether for a change of pace. Read More

Like others I did not have all fresh tomatoes on hand so I had to subsitute some canned diced tomatoes and I think that might be the way I'd make it again. I also added a little sugar to taste. Read More

This is amazing. Not heavy like a regular pasta sauce. I can't say I followed the measurements. Everything was eyeballed and wonderful. Didn't have enough fresh basil so added some extra dry. But wished I'd had more fresh. Had RomaGrape tomatoes needed using and one left over from my garden. Also added a few sundried as suggested by another 'viewer. Only hot sauce I had on hand was a Thai Garlic Chili Pepper Sauce that I might have gone just a little heavy on... hmmm good.... And to quote a favourite AD of mine... "I love to cook with wine. Sometimes I even add it to the food I cook." so I did. Added a big splash of white wine. Scrump-dili-oo-tious.!.!.! From the number of reviews (and no I didn't read ALL of them) this has been around for a long time. And gonna be around for more! Thank you Wendy for a "light" pasta dish. (sub shrimp next time?)

I love this recipe and we have it about once a month. I think it's great the way it is. I use Roma tomatoes since I've heard they are the best for cooking. I think people that don't like this recipe can't appreciate pasta that's not swimming in sauce. I don't think it's bland at all. My husband tends to like more sauce on everything so he's commented that it needs more sauce but he still loves the flavor. Read More
