    Delicious! So easy! I made a serving for three and didn't have canned diced tomatoes so I used two fresh ones and a little less than 1/4 cup of water instead of 1/8th and it was great.

    A delicious and quick easy meal. Just added a few slices of mushrooms, used 2 big fresh tomatoes instead and added more h2o and sodium since they like more gravy on it. They loved it, be on my cookin list ..... Thanx a lot MC.

    This was delicious. I used fresh tomatoes instead of diced, and omitted onions as I do not like them. I didn't have any fresh chicken breast on hand, so I used frozen and it still turned out great. All was served over spaghetti. My fiance and I loved it. I will definitely make this again.

    Extremely easy and delicious. I made it exactly as written because I had all the ingredients on hand. I served it over rice and found that to be a great choice. I was really surprised at how flavorful the dish was, considering how easy it was to put together. I will definitely be making this again!

    Very good. The flavor reminded me of chicken parm from childhood. I served with bowtie pasta.

    Easy and very pretty meal. I melted shredded mozzarella on top at the end and sprinkled with parm cheese. Then I served it on top of jasmine rice. So beautiful and so good!!

    This was just alright to me. It was really easy but my mistake may have been to use fettuccine noodles. It's what my husband wanted but I didn't think it went well; there just wasn't enough sauce.

    Really good! I am so pleased to have such a great tasting recipe that is so nice to look at too. This is one I will use for special occasions and guests. I cut the chicken breasts into bite-size pieces before browning -- and I added a bit more of each spice.

    This is an absolutely delicious meal, however I made a few modifications. First I used fresh chicken and then saved the chicken broth and used that instead of the water. Also, I used fresh baby tomatoes, 8 oz of spinach and 3 cloves of garlic. It was divine. So fresh and crisp. The perfect spring time meal. I highly recommend.

    Excellent recipe! Quick and easy to make, and I had all the ingredients on hand which was a plus. I added about a cup of cooked pasta to complete the meal. Will definitely make it again.

    Made this last night and it is delicious. I did season the chicken first and it had excellent flavor. Next time I will use thighs as I like them better.

    I think the chicken should be seasoned, u was a little bit bland.
