    Claire de Luna's Note:

    This is a "knock-off" of a dish from one of our favorite Italian restaurants. The prep time does not include marinating the chicken overnight. Most excellent served with Alfredo sauce and Artichoke hearts!

      The whole family loved this! Didn't remember to marinate the chicken over night so I just did it in the morning and it was still GREAT! Cooked the chicken in olive oil and added a little Italian blend cheese to the noodles.

      This made for an excellent meal. Served this with pasta, green salad and fresh bread. This looked so impressive arranged on a platter and tasted as good as it looked. Thank you for a recipe that I will be making again and again.

      Very good. My picky daughter said I should rate it 6 stars! I did ask you a question about cooking method, and I went with frying them in olive oil. Turned out great. I didn't add as much red pepper flakes to the marinade because of family considerations, but it was a enough to give it a little zing. I served it with mini-penne, Alfredo sauce and a lettuce and tomato salad. Thanks for posting this.
