    I'm not a big fan of chicken breast, so I'm always on the lookout for ways to disguise it. This was really good, and one I'll definitely make again. Since I don't like chicken breast, my favourite part of the meal was the sauce over the whole grain pasta....YUMMMO! - 6/17/09

    I too served it over whole wheat pasta. This will become a regular. My husband doesn't like Splenda so I used brown sugar. I would recommend only using half the amount. - 5/29/09
