    DELICIOUS! WOW, what a great tasting pasta dish. I added just a touch of butter with the olive oil to cook the onions (adds some great flavour), seasoned the chicken breasts with salt and pepper before cooking, used half of the oregano suggested (not a huge fan) and used whole wheat penne pasta. I used reduced fat feta cheese which melted right away and created this beautiful, light, creamy sauce. Everyone that tried it absolutely LOVED it. I'm so thrilled that I found this recipe. I will be using this for many years to come. DEVINE recipe Lalena... thank you so much for posting!  -  14 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was fantastic! I took some users suggestions and added the olives as well as some marinade from the artichokes. I also used a can of diced not drain! The marinade and juice from the tomatoes really helped keep this from being dry. I was very surprised at how flavorful this meal was! This is definitely restaurant quality! The feta cheese really gave it that "greek" flavor. My b/f referred to it as "fancy"! Wasn't very difficult to make and took right at 30 min to prepare and cook! There is also a ton of leftovers..which will be perfect for lunch! Will be making this again and would recommend this to anyone!  -  22 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was very good. Because of the mixed reviews I added the marinade from 1 jar of artichokes (I only used 1 jar) to add more flavor. Also used canned tomatoes since fresh are not in season. If you don't like tangy sauces then you won't like this one. Next time I'll add a bit of tomato paste to thicken the sauce. My husband and I really enjoyed this. I will make this again!  -  02 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
