I made this as described, other than mixing the chicken in with the sauce. This made a lovely coating sauce, with a tangy flavour that we very much enjoyed. Even my rather picky younger daughter enjoyed this dish, the cayenne pepper is just enough to please the palate without being ' burny '. Thank you lazyme, lovely recipe, quickly prepared for a good midweek dinner, dish, this recipe was made for My 3 Chefs 2012.
Oh my goodness, this is SO delicious!! A gorgeous clingy sauce that just coats the pasta and topped with the chicken, this was the perfect dinner after a busy day working! So much flavour and it's really quick to make!
No. Don't waste your time. This has some heat but the dish is so bland I have to do a major spice adjustment for the lunch leftovers. Beyond boring. Might just call it a fail and pitch the leftovers.
