    The calories listed are for one serving but this recipe makes 4 servings so divide the nutritional information by 4 to get one serving. I make this recipe often. Tasty and delicious. - 8/8/10

    Nutritional info definitely skewed...it says 1c Parmesan cheese in the breakdown but the recipe doesn't call for 1c plus the recipe is for 4 sv. If you take out the parm cheese, the single serving would be: 475 cal, 20 g fat and 19 g protein. Cut the oil by half and even less!! - 4/1/11

  • I love this recipe. The ingredients make enough for 4 people but as I cook this for only myself I like to half the ingredients and use the leftovers for a cold lunch the next day. Absolutely gorgeous, this is one of my favourites. - 9/21/12

    So easy to make even without all the ingredients listed. I substituted broccoli for peppers and to decrease the calorie count, I used 2 cups of cooked Quinoa in - 4/12/11

  • This fabulous - very flavorful. I used about half the chicken, though, and only 1 Tbsp of olive oil. I also had to use dried basil, but it did the trick! You could also decrease the quinoa if you wanted - I used about 2/3 of what it made. - 1/4/10
