1 (8 ounce) package
angel hair pasta
finely chopped onion
2 1/2 cups
boneless chicken breast halves, cooked and cubed
chopped fresh basil
hot pepper sauce
Awesome flavor, quick and simple to make. I did use 2 cans of basil, garlic and oregano diced tomatoes with their juices instead of fresh tomatoes other than that I followed the recipe. The only reason I gave this a 4 stars is because the sauce was watery, maybe I will use less of the juices and let it reduce before serving. I will definately be making this again.(Update: I did make this again and still used 2 cans of basil, garlic and oregano diced tomatoes but drained the juices from one can and then while cooking I let the sauce reduce until it was thick enough and not watery.)
I did not care for this recipe. As I started making it, I started realizing it may not taste very good. The recipe lacked as sort of taste other than the salty taste of tomatoes. I really disliked this recipe. You may just be better off cooking chicken and adding pasta sauce. I was hoping for a wonderful valentine's day dinner and it tasted like I cooked pasta and ate it plain.
I love this recipe. I used fresh garden tomatoes, tripled the garlic, added dried oregano, and omitted salt. Because the tomato mixture doesn't really make a sauce, I added 1 cup of white wine and just under a cup of chicken broth. Let everything simmer and it was simply delicious and light. The grated parmesan cheese is an essential finishing touch. I will definitely include this dish in my regular rotation. Thanks!
This was very tasty. I didn't have fresh tomatoes on hand so I added a 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes. I'm sure this is even better with fresh tomatoes. If using canned tomatoes, I think 1 tsp. sugar would help cut the tang of the tomatoes. My husband enjoyed this so I'll make this again!
We like basil, so I put in extra -- probably around 1 1/2 cups. I'll probably use a red pepper flakes, or a sprinkle of cayenne next time. I think our hot pepper sauce has lost its kick, so this dish didn't have any peppery zip, but the overall flavor was great. I don't think this would have been nearly as good with canned tomatoes, so we will save this recipe and make it again during fresh tomato season. I can also see either substituting shrimp or tofu for the chicken, or leaving it out altogether, for a change of pace.
I absolutely LOVED this!!! (and so did the rest of the girls!) I have to admit that i didnt really follow the measurements at all, i just kind of went guesstimated! I used a good amount of onions & chopped garlic cloves as well as hot pepper flakes. I also used diced tomatoes from a can and i thought it was perfect. Next time I will probably marinate the chicken in olive oil & fresh basil to give it more flavor. Other than that, not only did it taste fantastic but it looked fabulous as well!! (it even was good as leftovers the next day!!!)
*I made this again, and this time marinated the chicken overnight in Sun Dried Tomato dressing. It was a great touch! Also, I used Hunt's diced tomatoes with Basil, Garlic & Oregeno flavor, it definelty contributes to the overall taste
Like others, I did not have all fresh tomatoes on hand so I had to subsitute some canned diced tomatoes and I think that might be the way I'd make it again. I also added a little sugar to taste.
This was very good, i used penne instead of angel hair. I sauted the onion with garlic and chicken, along with salt pepper, garlic powder, oregano, crushed red chile peppers, and added 1 14oz can of diced tomatoes with basil and garlic I put a pinch of sugar to cut the bitterness of the tomatoes. I tossed with the pasta and it was sooooo goood. Thx!
