    I'm a 17 year old girl who is trying to ease her way into preparing meals for her family. Ironically, my parents are rather picky eaters, but they both love this dish! I think the pan-fried chicken (as opposed to boiled, unseasoned chicken) made this recipe wonderful. I added generous drizzles of olive oil and some fresh basil to complete this dish, and I served it with some hard French bread (garlic bread doesn't seem to go very well with it). 2 important notes: 1) I used an entire 16 oz box of pasta and it fed 6 people. There is no way that 8 oz of pasta would adequately feed 10 people, as the recipe states. That must be a misprint. So, larger families, keep that in mind! 2) I personally think the frozen peas wouldn't go well this dish. Chopped tomatoes seemed to compliment it better.

    Very Good

    This was a great recipe. However, I used the Classico Vodka sauce because I had it in the cupboard. The whole family loved it. I only used a pound of chicken and it was plenty. Other than that, I would not modify this recipe at all and we had leftovers!!!!
