This was quick, easy and tasty. I used canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh. Nice light meal w/tossed salad and bread.

This was so good!! I left out the onions and garlic (personal preference!), used fresh squeezed lemon juice and 1 can of diced tomatoes, undrained. For the water, I used some of the pasta water to thicken the sauce a little. I also sprinkled my chicken with chili powder before browning just for a little more depth of flavor and spice! I loved this and it is so healthy! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!!
