The recipe was way too rich for us and lacked seasoning. There was plenty of lemon flavor, but it needed pepper and salt to compliment it. Next time we will use half the cream cheese and season the chicken more (and serve with fresh ground pepper). We'll see how it goes!
We all loved it!! I threw in some fresh spinach for more color; For some reason my sauce was thin so I used a little corn starch and it thickened right up!!
I am a very beginner cook and this was simple and very Very good :) just the right amount of lemon and everything! I will be making it again, only this time more of it :)
I had to tweak this recipe a little because my husband just had surgery but it turned out great. I cooked 1 cup penne instead of 2. I used 3/4 lb. chicken breast browned in 1 tbs. oil and 1 tbs. unsalted butter. I lightly seasoned chicken with salt/pepper/garlic powder & ground ginger. I used 1 tbs. lemon juice with 3/4 cup chicken broth. Topped with 2 tbs. Italian mix cheese and 1/2 cup mozzarella with garnish of 2 basil leaves chopped. It was great
I though this dish was excellent. My husband and son found it a little lemony, but still enjoyed it. My daughter and I thought it was perfect. I added some broccoli to the pasta while it was cooking for some colour and nutrition. Thanks
I made this for my parents as well as my picky eater and they really enjoyed it, especially my dad who does not like anything lemon.
Easy to make. Delicious. Cut amount of pasta in half to suit portion for two adults. Used chicken broth instead of water and bullion cube. Will make again for sure!
This turned out very well. The next time, I will flatten the chicken breast and lightly coast them with flour, to give a slight crust. I will make this again...very easy & good!
this meal was so good. made it three times. ii added italian sausage in with it which made it amazing as well as red pepper for some spice.
I have made this dish three times now and everyone enjoys it very much. Friends and family request that I make it again. It is so creamy and delicious with great flavor. It is important to serve it right away though otherwise the cream thickens to a paste. I also don't use all of the lemon juice, leaving the halved lemon on the table for people to add as much lemon as they prefer. Sometimes you can add too much lemon juice to the dish.
