Really tasty! Cooked my own chicken & made broth...used a whole fryer, lots of celery, tarragon, salt, pepper, onion, poultry seasoning & garlic. I froze the leftover broth for another time. Awesome with homemade garlic bread & a salad. The cheese really tops it off! I used 1 and 1/2 boxes of the spaghetti. This is a keeper!

The recipe states 1/2 lb of chicken. I added about 1 lb of chicken and barely had enough for 3 servings. Lastly, a second pan to partially cook the chicken, that was just 1 more pan to wash! The chicken broth did add something to this recipe. Will not make again.

This was absolutely delicious! If you're a bell pepper lover like I am, this is a must try. I used yellow and orange bell peppers but will make it with yellow, orange, and red next time I make it :) Also, it makes a lot of pasta so there is definitely enough for 2 meals! I would also highly recommend using 1 pound or 2 chicken breasts. 1/2 pound is not nearly enough. Overall, great and tasty dish. I highly recommend it!

Very good - used Barilla Plus bow ties instead of spaghetti and Parmesan instead of Romano cheese. This recipe suits my family perfectly! Very healthy, love the Barilla Plus pasta! (Oh, and for the chicken I used part of a rotisserie chicken, saved the rest of it to use for sandwiches in our lunch).

This dish had a great flavor. The only thing change I will make next time is to increase the amount of chicken broth and cheese.

My family asks for it all the time, only I changed it slightly to make it saucier. I added about a cup of half & half with about 2 Tablespoons of flour to it for more "gravy".
