    Turned out really nice, now my family keeps wanting me to make it every night!  -  16 Mar 2012


    As an Italian, my only objection to this recipe are the instructions to cook the pasta first, and set aside. If you want your pasta "al dente" (angel hair easily overcooks anyway) I suggest the pasta pan be started only after the chicken is already cooking with the sautéed onion and broth.  -  23 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is one of the best recipes I've found on this site. I cut the recipe down to serve 2 and followed it almost exact with one exception. I doubled the amount of broth because it appeared a little dry. Instead of pouring the chicken mixture over the pasta, I added the cooked pasta to the skillet with the chicken mixture and heated it through for a couple minutes. It was so good, I made it two nights in a row!  -  16 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
