Quick and easy to make and results in a luscious sauce that's terrific over the chicken and fettuccine. Romantic dinner and dinner party worthy in 30 minutes.

This is a very tasty dish & we will definitely make it again. I think I will try with white wine as the red somewhat overpowered the taste of the basil and sun dried tomatoes. Thanks, Sugarpea
5 stars for easy, 4.5 for taste. Very tasty, easy dish. I think next time I will drain the sun-dried tomatoes, as the finished dish was very rich. (We got 3 servings, made to the recipe) Used white wine, based on previous reviews. Delicious! Served on whole wheat linguine. Diane
This was terrific and easy to make. I followed the recipe to a T but next time would use white wine and may cut back a bit on the tomato paste as I found the sauce was a little rich and overpowering. I served this over basmati rice.
