Rated 4 out of 5 by from Th whole family loved this dish. Th whole family loved this dish. I made the dish using a little extra chicken broth (as other comments suggested) I also decided to add 1/4 of a pkg of low fat cream cheese right at the end and we sprinkled fresh shredded parmesan on top. Next time though, I think I will add more veggies and a little less pasta. This made tons of food, plan on leftovers. Complete meal all by itself!!!

I agree with some of the other cooks - definately needs more basil sauce or broth, was a little disappointed on how dry it tasted. For some odd reason after I added the balsamic vinegar it turned gray? Other wise it did have great flavor and I will definately try again!

Other cooks mentioned that this dish needed more spices so I simply added salt and pepper to the chicken as I was cooking it. I also added a little more garlic and all came out very tasty. It was very easy to make and hardly took any time at all.

Needs more spices. Grated cheese is required. Fairly easy to make. More broth is needed though and perhaps a blender is not the best way to make the sauce.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and wonderful! Light and wonderful!! It's more of a basil toss than a sauce; but none the less, it was great. The basil mixture coats the ingredients instead of drowning them in a heavy mixture. Easy to fix and highly recommended.

The veggies turn out delicous! I added shredded parm cheese on top too. This is definitely a keeper with a few alterations!
