This recipe was amazing! Its not the healthiest of recipes but it tasted wonderful and my friends and I all agreed that it desevered 5 stars. I made only a couple slight changes: I cooked the chicken breasts in olive oil with Italian seasoning before cutting into pieces. I used herb and garlic feta cheese and sliced olives. The name of the recipe really should be Arti-Cheesy Chicken Pasta as the Penne pasta is not listed in the ingredients and should be. I used approximately 20oz. of Penne pasta. One of my friends recommend that I double the garlic next time. Serve with a side of green salad topped with balsamic vinaigrette.

My cousin made this dish for us and all six of us loved it! A bit salty because of the bacon and soup. Also, try using 1/2 of the cream or substitute milk for half of the cream because it is very rich. A very filling dish all by itself.

This sauce was VERY good. I omitted the artichoke hearts because I don't like them. I used herb and garlic feta and turkey bacon, as we don't eat red meat. Very awesome sauce, I think you could probably use most any variation of things and it'd still come out wonderful. Next time I will probably use a little less feta, and maybe some parmesan or something. Very yummy indeed.

Wow, this was really good, its not very often that I find a recipe that my husband enjoys as much as I do. I love cooking, and although this took quite a bit of time to prepare it was well worth the wait, while it was simmering I added 1.5 Tablespoons of italian seasoning, and some pepper. The recipe didn't say how to cook your chicken or whether or not to cut it up. I boiled my raw chicken breasts for 20 minutes and cut them into bite size pieces before adding into the recipe, anyways this was great and anyone thinking about trying.... SHOULD. :)

Yummy! I did lighten my version by subbing chicken broth for the cream soup, and a little white wine and milk for the heavy cream. Wait to salt after adding feta as it can be pretty salty itself. Served over bowtie pasta -we were extremely happy!!

This was very good, but I made a few changes. Instead of artichoke hearts I put in broccoli florets and I used turkey bacon and half and half to cut out some of the fat. I served it over pasta. Very yummy.

Tons of flavor - great dish! Made as written except I left the olives out (personal taste)
