      This was really good! It is realatively simple to make and the flavors are great. I used one whole jalepeno, seeds and all, and it was just enough spice to let you know that it was there but not hot enough to make it inedible. **Side note, Be careful when handling chile peppers. I forgot to wash my hands after chopping it. I rubbed my eyes and you would have thought someone was killing me!!** The colorful bell peppers add a nice touch to make it appealing to the eye too. I took the left overs to work and shared them with my office staff. The boss asked for the recipe! Overall, this is a very easy, tasty recipe that I will most definately make again!

      Perfect, exactly like CPK! I just made this tonight with a recipe nearly identical to this one, but not found on this site. If you don't have a few hours to devote to this dish from beginning to end, I would recommend doing all the prep work ahead and/or making the cream sauce ahead. Please note, the most important part of this recipe is the cream sauce and it is very important to get it to a paste like consistency. This may take 10-15 minutes once the stock, etc. is added. In the similar recipe I used, the cream is added to the cilantro garlic paste and reduced down my a half cup. I also used a total of 5-6 tbls (3 small limes) of fresh lime in both the sauce and the chicken. You may skin the jalepenos (by blistering 4 mins and removing skin with paper towel) before you mince them to make a smoother sauce. Don't skimp on ingredients if you want the CPK experience. Also if you are worried about calories or fat, this recipe is not for YOU. The time to prepare this to completion was 2.25 hours of which most is prep work. I could not tell the difference between my version and CPK and this is one of my most favorite pasta dishes on earth.

      This is my favorite dish from CPH and this is the third time I make it and my husband said " Why to got CPK when I can have it at home" =]. The first time I made this pasta I used the regular fettuccine, but I highly recommend you to use the spinach fettuccine, it taste way better than the regular fettuccine!. Thank you for this recipe!
