    Used different ingredients. As i wanted to cut out the parmesan, i decided to use a spoonful of tomato puree and some lemon juice which gave the recipe a nice fresh flavour.  -  05 Feb 2009

    This was a great meal. Make sure when you cook the chicken that its in small bites. I made the mistake of making them a little big and so it was hard. Also i think i would have changed the noodles to soemthing smaller, because it was very filling. I really liked this recipe, and i dont like chicken or olives. I was at first going to take out the olives but at the last second i kept them in. They help with the taste and you can always do what i did, put them to the side. Try it, see what you think.  -  15 Sep 2008
