  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, bread crumbs and sage. Cook and stir for 5 minutes. Remove from the skillet, and place in a bowl. Set the heat to medium-high. Add the chicken to the skillet; cook and stir for about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon juice, and reduce the heat to medium.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until tender. Drain.
  3. Add the pasta to the skillet, and stir to distribute chicken. Transfer to a serving dish, and toss with the garlic and breadcrumbs. Serve with fresh Parmesan cheese.

This was good but plain. I added some butter and extra spices.

Utterly forgettable. The description made it sound really tasty, the reality was dry pasta without enough anything all tossed together. I don't think this is worth trying to tweak.

I thought that this recipe was way too greasy and did not have enough flavor. Would not make it again.

Quick dish and a great way to enjoy chicken and pasta together, esp. if you have an abundance of sage in your garden. Adding bread crumbs was a neat touch. With a little personalization this could be a signature dish for anyone whose creative in the kitchen.

next time, I will add a lot more sage and a bit more olive oil, it wasn't as flavorful as I expected.

It was quite bland and disapointing although it was a decent basic recipe.

Why this recipe does not include salt and pepper I will never know. I went a step further. After preparing the garlic/crumb mixture I sauted the chicken in the same pan. I added salt and pepper and the some Worcestershire sauce (about a tablespoon) and some chicken broth. Cooked the chicken until it was done and decided it needed a little kick. Siracha sauce is the old standby so I squirted some of that in. More cooking, tasted and it was great. I then added the egg noodles (what I had) and the crumb mixture. It soaked up all of the juice. The dish was great, but I would make with thighs next time. I doubled the chicken without doubling the crumb mixture, since I had two breasts in the package. It worked fine, just more chicken.

I really liked this recipe. It tasted exactly as I expected it to--light and subtle--which, admittedly, is a different style than most American pastas. I didn't think it was bland at all, but the garlic cloves I used happened to be giant, so perhaps I used more garlic than the recipe calls for. Also, I used dried thin spaghetti rather than fresh linguine, so that may have affected the texture. Regardless, my whole family liked this one. We'll have it again!
