This was so easy! I have made it two times now! The 2nd time I made it I made a few changes to the recipe. I used 2-28 oz. cans of italian style diced tomatoes instead of 2-16oz cans. When I previously made the recipe with 2- 16oz. cans and it wasn't saucy enough, plus I didn't drain the tomatoes so it was really watery. I also added Mrs. Dash Table Blend, Parsley, Oregano, Basil, Garlic Powder, Pepper, and Onion Flakes to season the chicken and I added a little bit more to the dish before serving. The additional seasoning made it have more flavor, which was way better then the original recipe.

Boring and Bland

This was as stated, quick and easy and very good. My changes; used whole olives sliced in half length wise, sprinkled chicken generously with garlic powder and italian seasoning (didn't have garlic herb seasoning), used thin spagetti, and used only one can of diced tomatoes (would have been better with two, didn't have). I also seasoned to taste with salt and pepper. It's lighter than your normal pasta with sauce, and surprisingly flavorful with the little amount of seasoning. Next time I will toss in some fresh garlic and maybe even substitute canned mushrooms and tomatoes with fresh. As is, it is very tasty and quick when your in a crunch. I served with bruschetta and green salad. Thanks for sharing Tiffany.

I've done a bunch of recipes from allrecipes over several years, this one is hands down the best. My wife said it was like a pro dish from Macaroni's Grill. The only thing I did different was adding a bit of onion powder to the chicken, and then adding a 4 oz of tomato sauce to the chicken mixture as it simmered. Thanks for a great dish, Tiffany!

My father in law calls this Chicken Goulash. Its delicious. I tend to use peppers, onions, garlic, carrots, celery. Whatever I have on hand. Check out my pic.

This is a good recipe but it definitely needs more flavor and more tomatoes! Added an extra can of tomatoes and some garlic and Italian seasoning DELICIOUS!

You can't give this recipe less than 5 stars! I can't believe it turned out this good. I changed the quantities a bit just based on what I needed and added oregano, wine and garlic. I did not even need the parmesan. This one is a keeper.

Yum!! This really IS quick and easy, and a fun recipe to modify to your liking. For starters, have fun with the seasoning--I added garlic and just seasoned the chicken with salt & pepper. Next time I'm going to omit the canned mushrooms and use shrimp. This recipe is forgiving with substitutions, and it's nice to have a hearty, home-cooked meal ready in no time on a busy weeknight.
