A solid four stars - I have to admit I made some changes but they seem fairly insignificant. I let my son pick the pasta, so he picked seashells, and instead of cooking the chicken, I used meat I picked off last night's roasted birdie. The MAJOR change was that I used plain canned tomatoes and seasoned them myself with salt, pepper, oregano, basil and garlic. I generally don't like the flavor of the "flavored" canned 'maters so I never buy them. Kept to the heart of the recipe though, and it was great. Really really good. I would recommend seasoning the chicken as you cook it, just as a general cooking rule. Salt pepper and garlic is all you'd really need and would add another layer of flavor to the recipe.

Small changes due to what I had on hand. I used elbow macaroni and because I couponed it for REAL cheap, I used Philly's Italian Cheese and Herb cooking cream (the whole stinkin' container). I did spice my chicken before cooking it (onion powder, garlic powder, basil, oregano, pepper) and I did saute some fresh sliced onion, minced garlic, chopped red bell pepper and sliced baby bellas (had to use them--so why not throw it in?) in the skillet after I added the chicken. Had I NOT spiced my chicken and used a flavored cooking cream, it would have been bland. I think it still could use some oomph, like maybe some chicken broth instead of plain water, fresh chopped sweet tomatoes and more spices so I might play with the recipe still. I think it could be a great little skillet meal. For those of you who have spotted the cooking cream in your supermarket, this is a good way to use it.

This was pretty good. It just crossed over the line from being too bland, tho. Next time I think I will add garlic and/or onions to kick it up a bit. I cooked the chicken in a tbsp. of butter and sprinkled it with seasoning salt.
