There wasn't a weight given for the amount of chicken, but a pound of pasta ends up being quite a bit after cooking. I used 2 pounds of chicken breasts so you could find the chicken. After mixing it all together, there wasn't nearly enough "sauce"--I ended up adding the whole 2 cup container of cream before it was saucy enough. It was a mild-flavored dish.
