    For a Greek flavor, add a pinch of crushed dill and some cracked black pepper as well. (Think Gyro Tzatziki sauce flavor.) Stir in a Tbsp. of low fat sour cream into the lime juice to make a sauce for the pasta. - 10/29/07

    This recipe is great cuz it leaves room for interpretation. The basic flavor combination let you get creative with the vegetables and other spices to create and recreate - want Mexican? Add some corn, cumin, and chili powder. Italian? Add some zucchini, tomatoes, basil and oregano. It's flexible! - 7/31/12

    I made the recipe as shown and it definitely had potential. It came out pretty dry. Next time I will try adding more oil and lime juice, as well as some veggies. - 10/25/11

    I used lemon because that's what I had on hand. I didn't trust the nutrition facts, they seem a little off. I recalculated, but didn't save. 1 serving is about 10 WW points+ depending on how many ounces of chicken your use. I want to try it w/ broccoli, red pepper flakes and possibly asparagus. - 2/13/11
