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.

I made this a few days ago. I'm sure it would have been fine just the way it is written, but I added a few things. Since I didn't have any green onions, I used regular onions. I added fresh sliced mushrooms and some crushed red pepper flakes. Instead of mixing the spaghetti noodles and chicken mixture together, we just spooned the chicken on top of the spaghetti. My husband's least favorite meat is chicken and he loved it! In fact, he told me several times how much he liked it. I will definitely be making this again!

This was delish. Everyone liked this, but my son loved it; he ate this two night in a row and would not stop raving about it. I did add more lemon than called for in the recipe, but that is just my personal preference. Next time I think I will add some of the starchy water from the pasta to the finished chicken to make a little bit more sauce. Thanks for posting! Update: have made this more times than I care to admit to, the last few times I have made it; I added one of those chicken flavor booster (Swanson or Knorr) and some starchy water. Fabulous!!!! Thanks again for posting.

A quick and easy dinner which everyone enjoyed. It's important to use good quality ingredients in this simple dish for the best flavor. I used fresh lemon juice and extra pressed garlic. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

So easy and tasty! I used regular onions instead of green onions and tossed with Parmesan cheese like the others suggested. I steamed broccoli and added to my pasta at the end as my hubby doesn't care for broccoli.

Very good! Topped it off with some parmesan cheese, which was perfect! We are growing lemon basil right now so I subbed some of that for the parsley. I loved how simple this recipe was. Thanks!

Positively delicious. Thank you for posting. I ommited the chicken (I just didn't feel like defrosting it) and it was perfect. Looking forward to doing it again.
