This is a nice dish when you're in a hurry. It jazzes up bottled spaghetti sauce nicely for those nights you don't have time make sauce from scratch. Serve with a caesar salad and some French bread and you have a quick, satisfying meal.

I screwed up the angel hair pasta, but other than that, great dish!

This is easy to prepare and tastes very good. I did cut the chicken breasts in bite size slices before frying as KC did - cooks up quicker and is easier when eating out of a bowl. Thank-you for posting!
