    Pretty darn GOOD!

    GEORGINA CABRERA from Long Beach, CA

    Made this for the first time last week. My boyfriend and I liked it so much that we've made it twice more since then. Mind you, I'm no chef, so I love how easy it is to make. And for a full-on entrée, it doesn't take long at all!! Try it! It's worth it!! :-)

    A week later and he's still talking about it!

    Laura Allen from Charlottesville, VA

    Even after a few days of leftovers, my VERY hard to please husband is still raving about this simple recipe! I made the recipe as directed and then got worried that it was a little too humdrum for his liking. I boiled a bag of frozen carrots, brocolli and cauliflower that I had in the freezer and added them to the same sauce recipe (red sauce + heavy cream). I first gave the sauce a little extra bite by stirring in 2 tbsp of garlic/red onion that I had blended up to a puree. Then I stirred this new invention in with the original recipe- put it all in a 9" x 11" lasagna dish and kept it in the oven on warm until a very pleased new husband came through the door. It was EXCELLENT! I can't wait for a few weeks to go by so that it can make a second appearance!

    Bridgett from New Jersey

    This dish was great! I made it for my in-laws & they raved! Very simply yet very very tasty. My kids loved it even though it was chicken! Definitely recommend it.

    easy and yummy

    subi from mi

    This is a great recipe and really easy to make. However , since we like spicy food, I added some crushed peppers and garlic powder to the chicken. You will not regret it! No leftovers at all!!!

    Little Bland

    TAMMY from

    This was easy to make but didn't have any flavor. It needs some spices.

    It's just right

    raquel from Melrose Park, IL

    I have tried this recipie for my family, they liked the buitoni sauce but the chicken taste a little bland. So the next time I made this I tried adding some salt, pepper and a little paprika on the chicken when cooking for a little more spice and taste. This is so easy to make and will be making again.

    MMmm!

    Liz Mercado from Middletown, PA

    Yummy!!! It's amazing how tasty this recipe is even though it's not much of an effort to make. Don't count on left overs. My family had second and third helpings the night I made it. They loved it.

  •  Star(s)

    AWESOME

    Danielle from

    My family which consists of a very picky husband and a very picky 2 and 3 year old absloutley LOVED this.I expected it to taste like plain old spaghetti(which we also love) but it had its own taste.Will definently make again..SO SO easy.The only thing I did different was dice the chicken instead of having the strips.Cooks faster that way.I served it with a salad and fresh bread with olive oil and italian spices...A keeper!!!

  •  Star(s)

    Wonderful!

    Hitomi Seto from Japan

    I was interested by this recipe so I printed it out and prepared the dish immediately. It was easy to cook and was very tasty. My family was very satisfied with this dinner.

  •  Star(s)

    Pretty good!

    Kim from Anchorage, Alaska

    Tried this with a home made marinara (off another cooking web site), and it was pretty good. Used parmesano-reggiano cheese, which has much better flavor than regular parmesan. Next time I might cook it without the chicken. Less fat and calories, and probably twice as good!

  •  Star(s)

    Delicious!

    Molly from Rockland County, NY

    This is a great recipe. Its so easy to make and it tastes incredible. Try it with other pasta shapes...Its soooooo delicious and my boyfriend loves it, too!!!

  •  Star(s)

    needs something

    Monica from Grand Rapids, MI

    Great recipe and easy to make, but it is lacking something. It needs a little zip, either with spicier maranara with more veggies or some seasoning on the chicken.

  •  Star(s)

    Great

    Noelle from Greensboro, N.C.

    I love trying new things!! I tried this and love it. My kids and husband loved it too!! I also made it with ground beef and it was just as good. I added more garlic as well. I could not find that particular brand of marinara, but the brand I got was just as good. I assume you could use about any brand. I love this site!!! I also tried shrimp w/chicken....Delicious!!!!!!!!!!

  •  Star(s)

    Sauce is FABULOUS!!

    Laurel from Shawnee, KS

    I love this recipe. I am not very good at sticking to recipes as they are printed. I used double the garlic. My girls won't eat plain marinara sauce but they love the "pink stuff." I have already made it 3 times and given it out to several friends.

    Pretty good!

    Chelsie from Indiana

    I cooked this for my fiance, mom, dad, and sister. My sis said it was good and tasted kinda like ravioli, while my fiance and dad fell in love with it. Mom thought it was sort of bland. If you add spices to it to give it some zest, it will be a lot better. But, I will definitely make this again, with my minor improvements.

    THIS CAN GET YOU IN TROUBLE!

    John from Rocky Hill, CT

    I made this for my girlfriend on Valentines day. If you are not careful, this recipe will get you in trouble. I don't normally cook, and I'm not very good at cooking, but she loved it! Now she wants me to cook more often! Like someone suggested, I cut the chicken into smaller pieces, and it worked well. Even my project manager liked it (I brought in left-overs today).

    THIS FOOD IS AWESOME!!!!!

    YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  •  Star(s)

    It's worth it!!!!

    Marina from Largo, Florida

    I would like to say that this recipe is great, I made it yesterday for the family and everyone aproved!! I would just sugest that instead of cutting the chicken in strips, that it would be cut in cubes, it would be easier and better to eat...Thank you, it was a great meal!!!

  •  Star(s)

    Wonderful

    Deanna from Memphis, TN

    I fixed this for my husband's birthday dinner. I used fresh pasta and let the chicken and sauce simmer for 30 minutes. This made it much creamer and flavorful. You have got to try this fantastic recipe!!!

    Worth trying!

    Tina Fong from Stockton, California

    I read past reviews about this recipe and decided to give it a try. The reviews were right. My family liked this meal, even my picky four year old who is happy just eating peanut butter sandwiches for every meal! Not only is the recipe super easy to make, it tastes pretty darn good!

  •  Star(s)

    Easy alternative

    Amy from Charlotte, NC

    This was a very easy dish to create and a great alternative to 'plain old spaghetti.' I added onions and green peppers to spice it up a bit. My family thought it was delicious!
