We loved this! A very simple and quick recipe that proved to be very good. I worried that it might be too "lemony" for the kids [5 and 2] but they loved it. The only change I made was adding freshly grated Parmesano Reggiano cheese when tossing together. Thanks for a great weeknight meal idea...and a cheap one at that!

A great basic recipe to play with, and very easy (esp. if you dice lots of chicken on weekends and freeze in sealed bags, like I do). I too switched out the seasoning salt -- too "artificial" for an otherwise fresh and lively recipe. At the end, why note make a pan sauce by simply deglazing all those good bits with chicken broth! Also added steamed asparagus tips.

Quick, easy and delicious! Not too lemony.
