We really liked this, even with the improvisations I had to make. Made for two people and I used some precooked chicken breast, cut into small pieces, warmed in butter with fresh garlic and Spike seasoning which contains most of the seasonings (dill, parsley, lemon/orange peel, pepper, herbs). Then added 3/4 cup of chicken broth/white wine and half a lg lemon juiced, mixed with a T. Wondra flour and simmered for 15 minutes to thicken. Added 1.5 cups cooked mini penne pasta, chopped fresh parsley, simmered a bit with 1/3 c FF half and half for another 10 mins. nice quick weeknight dinner that I would serve to anyone.

Great Dish. I was able to find the Kerrygold butter- it's not with the butter in my grocery, but with the gourmet cheeses. I was not a fan of this dish with the Kerrygold-too strong of a dill flavor for me. I made it again using Kerrygold butter and adding fresh garlic to it. Followed the rest of the recipe to a tee and it was so good. I will make this again and again. Thanks!

Fantastic, delicious recipe! Made a lot, and reheated well the next day. I couldn't find garlic butter so just added garlic and well..butter.
Didn't want to go buy base so used Chicken Bouillon (went a little lighter though), and used Old Bay Seasoning in place of a more standard seasoning salt. Turned out well though, and making it again this week!

Wonderful recipe! Very simple and easy to put together. The garlic butter isn't available in my stores, so I added the chives, parsley, paprika, dill and pepper. Thanks for posting the recipe and the ingredients in the garlic butter.

Delicious! I subbed the garlic butter with chives, parsley, garlic and butter. Also, I didn't have whipping cream on hand so I used half sour cream and half milk, which worked just fine! This was easy to throw together and was full of lemony goodness! Made for Went to the Market tag game. Thanks diner! :)

I use 'spirits' in much of my cooking with the exception of baking 'cuz it causes such a big mess when you're staggering around the kitchen. Speaking of which..pass the wine, please. Made for POTLUCK and quite delicious!

Yup! Another five star! So good! I did add a little red pepper flakes, sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. For the garlic butter I used butter, garlic and parsley. I used barilla plus penne and 1% milk and it came out just great! Can't wait to try it over brown rice! Had with steamed green beans and Olive Bread! Thanks for posting! Made for The Queens of Quisine ZWT 6!

Good.. Tastes like something I'd eat @ a diner.. It came out well just needed some black pepper and crushed pepper.. There is alot of chicken in this recipe, can definitely double the pasta for the amount of meat! Next time I will steam broccoli throw in the sauce right before the pasta!

This was excellent - I usually make chicken cutlets with a lemon cream sauce that is similar - but liked this one dish simplicity... I too, just used butter and fresh garlic, parsley and pepper instead of the garlic butter listed - and I used less than the 1/4 cup. After browning my chicken, I added the wine and lemon juice- deglazed my pan then lowered the heat before adding my half and half- I let it simmer for a while to finish cooking the chicken completely. I did have to add some extra water b/c it was very thick - I also doubled it and used an entire pound of pasta (I only had spaghetti on hand)- it made a TON!! My family of 6 loves chicken and pasta though... lots of leftovers!
