I cut my chicken in bite size pieces & added all the ingredients together rather than putting chicken on top. Chicken breast tends to be kind of dry, son ?I think by cutting them into smaller pieces & adding it to the sauce with the pasta it was't dry. I also under-cooked the pasta because when I mixed it all together, I placed the mixture into a 9 X 13 pa, covered with foil & put it in the oven on very low, 170 for an hour or a little more. Pasta was just right & full of flavor

I have made this and the very similar bow tie pasta with shrimp multiple times - even last minute for unexpected guests. It is my favorite recipe. I have yet to find anyone who does not love it. At times I have added some fresh minced garlic or used the herb and garlic cooking cream - always fast, easy and delicious!

Also added frozen green beans when the pasta was almost done. I grilled then chopped up the chicken and mixed everything together. It was awesome and I would definitely make it again!
