Overall tasty! I doubled the recipe, and I did cut up the chicken into slightly smaller pieces, also added more red pepper flakes and lots of garlic and used whole wheat penne (just trying to be a little healthier!) I think next time I will use an Italian blend of cheeses in place of just mozzarella.

I also felt that this was lacking some color but more impotantly, taste. I used some extra garlic, paprika, and salt to no avail. It certainly wasn't a bad recipe, but I probably wont be making it again.

It felt like it was lacking in both substance and color. I used a smoked paprika instead to give a an extra punch as well as some brocolli and carrot to give it a little more color. I also added some chives at the end to give it a little but of and onion hit. That made it a lot nicer for me personally but you milage may vary. I would also reccomend sauteeing the chicken in the oil from the tomatoes, it adds a nice depth of flavor.

Good. I made the mistake of using fresh tomatoes which kinda ruined the texture.

it was sooo good. i agree with others on the fact it was a little bland, so Season season season! i added onion pepper, pepper, salt, garlic salt, added alot of flavor. also added extra hot red flakes, i never would of thought to add those, i now add them to alot of my dishes as me and my man love spicy. so glad i found this app. we are eating better than ever! will def make this again next time going to try a diff protein like turkey sausage or shrimp.

I absolutely loved this I used chicken thighs and it was very tender and moist. I also used extra red pepper flakes to add more kick to it. My husband loved it so much he ate leftovers for 2 days.
Cynthia Guerrero 12 Sep 2018
Delicious, will have to teak with sauce a little next time.

The cheese didn’t mix very well and became clumpy. The whole recipe lacked flavour.
Lita P. 27 Aug 2018
Always a quick and yummy recipe I use cayenne pepper instead of flakes because I can have the seeds. Still maintains the flavor.

Yummy... this is the second time I made this dish. My family loves it.
Kayla E. 19 May 2018
It was good but I added a little more cheese to thicken
Lisa Haney Dixon 14 May 2018
Added onions and mushrooms and chicken stock to deglaze the pan but otherwise great!
Haley Washburn 23 Apr 2018
Made mine without the sundried tomatoes. I also sauteed the garlic with diced onion. Everything was basically good EXCEPT I thought the taste was a bit bland so I added parmesan and it was awesome!! Also my sauce seemed kinda griddy. Might've been something I did but overall, I will probably make it again! 🤩
Vanessa Delgadillo 14 Apr 2018
Awesome! Highly recommend this recipe
Teela J 26 Mar 2018
Great recipe! I didn’t use tomatoes.
Rachel M. 15 Mar 2018

Sherri S. 1 Feb 2018

Verygood, swapped out mozzarella for parmesan since i didn’t have it at hand, worked well
Emmy Raugh 21 Nov 2017
really great flavor, used sausage instead of chicken and added half a small yellow onion when sautéing garlic and tomatoes
Bennett Filipski 14 Nov 2017
This pasta turned out delicious. Just need to add more cheese and half and half next time.
