I got this recipe a few years ago off of another site and I just love it. I make by own chicken both from a chicken bouillon cube which I add the lemon juice (I only add about 1 tsp.) and cornstarch to and set aside. I brown my garlic in a little olive oil then throw in the shrimp. When this is heated up I add the chicken stock. Cook until thicken then I add only a small dash of red pepper powder, a dash of Kitchen Bouquet Browning Sauce and so so soy sauce. Add salt & pepper to taste. And finally I stir in the broken up cooked spaghetti. Heat and eat.

Very good and easy. Added a little white wine to the sauce.

I had a friend of mine, who is a vegetarian, over for lunch today. Made a few modifications to the recipe as a result. Instead of regular pasta I used whole wheat and instead of chicken broth I used vegetable broth. As a result I did have to add a bit of salt to taste as the vegeatble broth doesn't have the sodium you find in the chicken broth so without it, it was a bit bland. Aside from that I also sauteed the garlic a bit before adding the additional ingredients to get the full flavor and added a little garlic powder. One more change was instead of cornstarch I used flour, that was just what I had in my cabinets. Otherwise I followed the recipe pretty close. It was YUMMY! I WILL definitely be making this again.

Great and the family loved it! Will add more garlic and pepper next time... maybe a tad more salt too.

I used this as a basic recipe, but changed a few things. I sauteed the garlic a bit before making the sauce. I made my own stock from bouillon, doubled the garlic, used less cornstarch, and a few squirts of lemon juice (didn't measure). Mine actually had quite a spicy kick to it, with just enough lemon zing. My husband loved this very light dish. I hope I can make it the same again since I didn't follow the recipe exactly! Thanks for sharing!

This was really great. Unfortunately I added more garlic than the recipe called for and it was to much. I will definitely make this again with less garlic.

This dish was excellant!!! Id say almost restaurant quality! Much better because I added more shrimp then what you would get in a resaurant. Next time I make it, I think I will saute the garlic & I added 4 large cloves, in a little olive oil before I add the rest of the ingredients. I loved this dish! For such a simple recipe it was great!

Char, we loved this! I don't eat shrimp often but when I do I try and make it special. I followed the instructions as written except I used chicken broth with added garlic plus the garlic that the recipe called for. We love garlic! Thanks so much for posting this simple, delicious dish!

I forgot the lemon juice but added a bit of cayane pepper. This was sooo good, I thought it would be bland and didn't know if it would thicken. I will definately make again! Thank You :)
