Lovely weeknight dinner! I used gluten free penne because thats what I had gluten free, but otherwise made as written. Like Karen Elizabeth said, can't go wrong with this. Thanks for another yummy recipe, dear Pam!<br/>Made for the Cookathon in memory of pammyowl, November 2013
Can't go wrong with this, simple and delicious! I used dried dill very successfully, and I used penne, mostly becuase I like it :) and thought it would go well with this dish, which it did. Lovely recipe, very much enjoyed, made in loving memory of our dear Pammyowl, never forgotten.
This goes into my A1 Rotation cookbook: it was tasty and easy, different from my usual choices. Thanks for revising the recipe to call for 1" chunks of chicken (my photo shows 2" cubes). My local store did not have fresh tarragon or dill, so I used 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon, and the dish was delicious. For us, I doubled the amount of broccoli, and the 2 of us devoured the rest of the ingredients with no difficulty, and had dessert. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
