"This is a great dish to serve when you are tired of the normal Alfredo or spaghetti. Great flavors and very aromatic. You can use pork or ham instead of the chicken to change it up. You can also add fresh grape tomatoes, mushrooms, onion, or broccoli. I am sure there are many other varieties; these are just what i have used in the past." — Cheelara

1 (16 ounce) package

1 1/2 cups

Wonderful! A MUST try! Everyone loved this!!!
I'm giving it four stars because it is too caloric and the recipe calls for too much mint. 1 tbsp or less is more than enough. Also, be careful with honey, as it can easily get too sweet (and horrible). Perhaps you can omit it altogether. Instead of lemon zest and sherry vinegar, I added 2 tbsp lemon juice at the end and it was just right. Also, instead of heavy cream I used no fat half&half and thickened it with flour--the texture and taste were still perfect.
This was really good. I changed it up a bit for flavor preferences and dietary concerns. I used whole wheat penne instead of spaghetti, added the juice of half a lemon with the chicken broth, and substituted the heavy cream with 1% buttermilk. I needed to add a little cornstarch and water for the sauce to thicken - probably a result of using the buttermilk. Small price to pay to save a whole lot of fat and calories. Tasted great, thank you for the wonderful recipe.
Excellent - not to be overlooked
I apologize to everyone, the nutritional information is incorrect. I will try and get it revised as soon as possible.
Only tweak I would make is to cook chicken with some lemon pepper. Sliced chicken and added back to sauce with asparagus and bow tie pasta. YUM!
Omg, delicious! Really really good!
Sinfully delicious! I used BLSL breasts, which I cooked whole then sliced before adding back into the sauce. I love the different twist the mint brings to the sauce. It is a perfect balance of flavors. Unless we had a special occasion, I would use low fat evaporated milk in place of the heavy cream. I think it would work, saving calories without sacrificing taste. Thank you, Cheelara!
