I've made this a few times and I'm always surprised by how good this dish is and my kids love it too.
I changed a few things based on other reviews and to suit our taste. I cooked carrots with the pasta for the entire time, and added the peas at the end like it says. I chopped the onion and browned it with the chicken in a tablespoon of olive oil. I added a tablespoon of cornstarch to the broth before putting it in the skillet. I left chicken in the skillet and added the broth and dressing. I also used about a half teaspoon of dried basil instead of fresh. I substituted zesty Italian for the Tuscan because that is what I had on hand.
This recipe is quite delicious, but it does need a couple of tweaks. I added 1/2 cup of Italian dressing instead of 1/4. I also added the carrots to the broth and dressing, to give them more flavor. To avoid it being runny, I changed it to make the sauce creamy. I did this by heating 1 cup of milk in a separate pot and thickening it with 2 tbsps of flour(stir in pot until thickened). I then added it to the broth and chicken. Once I added the noodles and peas, I let them simmer for around 15 minutes. Added a little salt and pepper and flavor was great! And it wasn't runny at all.
Just made this tonight, but with a few adjustments after reading the reviews. I marinated the chicken in Italian dressing and balsamic vinegar first, added the carrots sooner, left out the peas, and tossed in some roasted sweet peppers at the end. I still wasn't very impressed. The chicken was really good, but the sauce was pretty thin and pretty bland. And the carrots were still crunchier than I like. I have some leftovers though, and maybe it'll be better for lunch tomorrow... But I've got plenty of new recipes to try before I'll give this another go.
This was my husband's first attempt at cooking. He loved it because it was easy for a beginner and I loved it because it was pretty healthy and didn't have any obscure ingredients in it. We will definitely have a lot of fun playing around with variations on this one!
This was very plain :[
This recipe was delicious. My husband doesn't like a lot of heavy sauces especially during summer, this was a light alternative.
Family liked this, also easy to prepare. But the cooking time on the vegtables needs to be increased by 5-10 minutes, the suggested cooking time left the vegtables too firm for my taste.
This recipe was ok. Nothing special. Too much liquid and it would have been better with more Tuscan sauce.
