I used penne instead of linguine, less chicken (typical for me), and less garlic (unusual for me, but that's a lot of garlic! and I still thought the garlic flavor was strong), and it was YUMMY! I steamed and chopped the arugula before adding it, and I was surprised how this dish completely took down the bite of what was more-peppery-than-usual arugula.
I'm odd woman out on this. I thought it was bland. If I had this to do over I'd add a lot of spices to the chicken. I love arugula but that's all I really tasted so I'd just rather have it as a salad. However, I'm glad I gave a new recipe a go. Thanks.
I love this recipe and it was really simple to make. I also recommend using half chicken broth and half dry white wine. I took this recommendation from Chef#823186...lol It also helps if you roughly chop up the arugula before adding it in the pan so that the arugula can be spread out more throughout the dish...yum lol. -Thank you for the recipe :D
This was excellent. I used ekives recipe on this site for arugula pesto (w/cashews) instead of just the arugula leaves. Also, half chicken broth/half white wine. The little we had left over was great warmed the next day.
I love arugula but have never cooked with it - just eaten it in salads. This was soooo delicious. A new summer favorite! I halved the recipe and it easily fed three. I also added salt to taste. Thanks, Bill!
My family loved this recipe (except my husband who likes his greens well cooked) The only thing I changed was to add a little salt to the sauce, which is not mentioned in the ingredients - we all added more salt at the table. The arugula was a little crunchy - we picked it from the yard, so maybe it was a little more mature than what is available in the supermarket. Next time I will cook it a little longer before adding the chicken. The chicken was beautifully tender. A real hit!
This one definitely passes the test! My family devours this whenever I make it. Remniscent of dishes served at Buca di Beppo, with the rough chunks of tomato and garlic. Delicious!!
