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.

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).

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".
