As an Italian, my only objection to this recipe are the instructions to cook the pasta first, and set aside. If you want your pasta "al dente" (angel hair easily overcooks anyway) I suggest the pasta pan be started only after the chicken is already cooking with the sautéed onion and broth.

This is one of the best recipes I've found on this site. I cut the recipe down to serve 2 and followed it almost exact with one exception. I doubled the amount of broth because it appeared a little dry. Instead of pouring the chicken mixture over the pasta, I added the cooked pasta to the skillet with the chicken mixture and heated it through for a couple minutes. It was so good, I made it two nights in a row!

I, too, like many reviewers thought this recipe sounded wonderful. The aromas from the seasoned chicken filled my kitchen, reminding me of the holidays. However, once the chicken dish was completely cooked, I was not impressed with the overall taste. It needed much more seasoning. It's hard to believe, given the amount you use on the chicken. Perhaps the chicken broth really dilutes the flavors. The only way I could save this dish was to add a can of crushed tomatoes. That is just what this dish needed! Only then could my family and I really taste the seasonings from the chicken. This dish was great, once I added the tomatoes!
