Great yummy recipe! My family loved it, but I did make a few substitutions. Instead of heavy cream, I used 1% milk. I also sauteed the chicken in a little olive oil instead of breading and frying it. I used frozen brocolli that I thawed in the microwave and celletani as the pasta. I can't wait to make this again. I would recommend this recipe to anyone!

This is a nice recipe, but unless you like bland food, be prepared to add a lot of spices. I added much more garlic, salt, and some other complimentary spices. Also before cooking I decided I wanted to make an "oven baked ziti" So after it was prepared, I placed it a baking pan, sprinkled the top with shredded cheese and parmesan and put it in a 350 degree oven for 30 min. I also cooked the chicken in olive oil, instead of frying. I will say that I tasted it before baking it and it was much more flavorful after baking it.

this is the BEST chicken ziti and broccoli recipe i ever ever made or tasted. the only thing i left out was the artichoke hearts as i don't like them. my husband couldn't believe that i made it! he thought we ordered it from our local Italian restaurant!!!!!!! Thanks for the recipe!!!

This is one of our favorite recipes! I left out the artichoke hearts and added a red pepper that I thinly sliced. I also adjusted the recipe to make extra sauce for the dish as well as adding a little more garlic. I seasoned and grilled the chicken to avoid frying. Overall wonderful recipe!!

I liked the flavor of the sauce a lot..A bit salty, so be careful of adding more salt. Also, the recipe calls for corn starch to be added, but does not say how. DON'T just dump the cornstarch in or you will have lumps to deal with. Some changes for next time: Half & half instead of heavy cream (it doesn't need it!)More artichokes, less pasta, and less chicken. I think I would have liked it better as a saucier dish.

I have made thes recipe a few times now and I love it. It is a easy, fast and filling meal. I made it for my son's christening and I also made it for my family a few times and have had nothing but positive feedback. I am now going to make some and bring it to work for my co-workers tonight. I highly recommend the worst cook to try and make this, it will be a big hit.

Very yummy! Followed exactly as directed and it turned out great, boyfriend especially liked. To cook the chicken, I first marinated it for a few hours in milk, egg and garlic powder. I then combined fresh breadcrubs, parmesan, italian seasoning, salt and pepper in a large ziplock and shook each breast in mix one at a time. Repeat the egg and breadcrumbs one more time. Cook in vegetable oil over medium heat until cooked through. Will definitely make again! Thanks Lisa!

Great tasting recipe Lisa - good job!! My family and I really enjoyed it. I made the sauce in the same skillet as the chicken was cooked - I deglazed the pan with white wine and started the sauce. delicious!
