Mediocre. The recipe calls for too much lemon juice for my taste...and the consistency of the sauce was odd. Had to pick the chicken out of the leftovers, rinse it, and make chicken salad because no one (including myself) liked this dish. Sorry!

Hey...we loved it! The taste was yummy!!! Ken and I love lots of veggies and meat, so next time, we'll cut the spaghetti to 1/2 lb. Now that I think of it, I did add a bit more flour to thicken the sauce, but other than than... it's a keeper. Maryanne

It was great. Easy to make. We used Farfalle unstead of spaghetti. We didn't have a tomato on hand so we didn't use. We'll have to try it with that next time we make it.
