This is a quick and tasty one-skillet meal. Just add a salad and garlic bread, and dinner is ready in no time. Perfect for those busy nights when we had to run to hockey practice. Those were the days!

This was easy, tasty and didn't creat a lot of dishes. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of cutting the chicken into pieces and leaving it in the pan with the spaghetti as it cooked and I used rotini instead of spaghetti. I used four cloves of crushed garlic and next time I would like to add just a hint of crushed red peppers for some extra kick. This was a nice quick meal for a busy weeknight. The leftovers the next day were a bit dry though according to my boyfriend. Thanks for posting!

Very good! We used about half of the basil and added 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning. Didn't remove the chicken from the pan as another person suggested, making this a one-skillet meal. Quick and easy!

We loved this and so easy to make. I used a 16 oz. package of spaghetti so I had to add a little water. I will make this again but next time use a couple cans of broth along with the full 16 oz. spaghetti.
