Family really enjoyed it.
Rennay Angel 26 Sep
it was okay, it still was a little bland for me so I had to add more seasoning.

This was really good. I wanted to hold down the spices so I didn't add the cayenne pepper feeling the chili power was enough. Then based on the other reviews, I added a T+ cilantro (it goes well with lime) and used Penzeys' black and red pepper blend to spice that up. It worked well.

chicken was really good but pasta was definitely bland. maybe add more chili and lime to chicken also.

The chicken was really good but the whole family found the pasta kinda bland. Would make again but would jazz up the pasta a little.

this is fabulous!!! Added zucchini, wonderful
Nikki D. 12 Jun
This was amazing! Didn't have fresh tomatoes so I used 1/2 can of diced Italian tomatoes (my Husband isn't a tomato lover) also, we didn't have any charcoal so I cooked it in the skillet and it was still great. Thank you for this recipe, it's a keeper!

Really yummy! I don’t normally make such heavy dishes but this hit the spot. Maybe more lime and chili for an extra punch next time but my man and I loved it!!

The pasta was DELICIOUS as well as the chicken. The two didn't go perfectly together, but the recipe was easy and definitely worth it.

Hello Madam 29 Jan
It’s delicious But I made the mentioned amount of sauce for half the amount of pasta.. and I used half the amount of cream cheese.. it turns out yummy 😋
Hannah Jackson 5 Jan
This was amazing. The directions didn’t indicate when to add the flour but I assume that you were supposed to add it after or during the garlic was sautéed and before the broth and milk. I didn’t do this unfortunately, but it still turned out delicious. I added a whole 8 oz of cream cheese though and it was delic. The chicken was moist too. I didn’t grill it outside, it’s winter, so I grilled it on a grilling pan and it was just as amazing.

instead of grilling (it's too cold out) I fried the chicken in a pan. worked just fine!
Michelle Schaub 4 Dec 2017
This is amazing the chicken is perfectly seasoned and came out moist and delicious. I used chicken breasts and pounded them out evenly so they cooked very well on the grill. Definitely will make again, even my 9yr old loved it!
Michael 14 Nov 2017

Teresa Martinez 24 Oct 2017
It was very good. It did make a lot of dishes though. Make only on the weekend when you have plenty of time
Betsy D. 10 Oct 2017
This recipe turned out great. The three boneless chicken breast was the perfect amount. Will definitely make this again!
Julie B. 24 Jul 2017
So yummy! I had to leave the tomatoes out because of a picky eater, but I added spinach. It was a big hit! Edited to note: I made the sauce for the pasta in the same pan after the chicken, and I think that helped flavor the pasta.
