    We liked this. It was a little dry, but I think I cooked the "sauce" too long. It was tasty though. I would like to know how much a serving is. It would be easier to know a cup was a serving than trying to guess. - 3/4/08

    Great recipe! Next time, I will add the pasta to the saucepan and mix with the veggies, chicken and sauce. This will help with the dryness:) Yummy! - 1/20/09

    This was a hit at my house last night. All of the boys threw hot sauce on it to give it more kick. I ate it as is and thought it was great. Worked well paired with some garlic bread. Everyone ate their vegetables! - 6/19/08

    I'm actually having this tonight! Such a quick and easy recipe, and the meal is very light. The only thing different I do is add the parmesan cheese after I've made the dish to give it more of a taste. This is one of my favs!! - 2/25/08

  • My kids LOVED this meal and they are extremely picky eaters. Not only did they eat was on their plate they asked for more. WOW! I will make this again. - 1/22/10

  • I made this for dinner tonight. Was a hit with my almost 2 year old, even ate the veggies! Adding the chicken to the sauce while it simmers helps a bit with dryness i think. Also will use more broth next time and cook the sauce a little less. Pretty tasty and filling. - 10/18/09
