Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had to tweak this recipe a little because my husband just had surgery but it turned out great. 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made this dish three times now and everyone enjoys it very much. 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.

After reading the reviews, I added a couple of cloves of garlic to the water, added dill and black ground pepper to the melted Phili. Drizzled the lemon juice and black pepper over the pasta, tossed it together and then mixed it into the chicken Phili mixture and it was great!!Thanks to all of the commenters!

I tried this recipe tonight for my family, including a 6 year-old and an 11 year-old and they cleaned their plates! I added salt and pepper to chicken while it cooked. I used the lomon herb cooking creme from philadelphia cream cheese,a nd added frozen peas to the sauce. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The recipe was way too rich for us and lacked seasoning. 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious and really easy. Delicious and really easy. I also used the lemon/herb Philly cooking cream rather than plain cream cheese but I think it only added to the recipe. If you want to impress someone with a very nice dinner (and not have to spend all day cooking) this is a perfect choice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe last night! I made this recipe last night! & everyone LOVED IT!!!! There was absolutely none left over! The only thing i switched was adding only the lemon zest, because from that you could taste a lot of the lemon flavor, but add as you please! Once again DELICIOUS:)!!!
