This is a simple recipe with a big presentation. The ingredients are all easy to find, and easy to put together. I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. Everyone loved it. We served with a big salad and garlic bread. It was the perfect weekday dinner! I will be adding this to my monthly meal plan!

This Angel Hair and Chicken Pomodoro recipe looks very easy to make. The ingredients are so simple, they could be readily available in your cupboard right now. I like the simplicity of the chicken and other ingredients in olive oil then mixed with the pasta. This is a basic pasta recipe that everyone will enjoy. Cheers!

Ignoring the photo illustration which seems to be of a somewhat different dish, this seems to be a really good chicken and pasta dish. I had to chase down other recipes for Chicken Pomodoro to fill in the missing ingredients and steps, like what to do with the roma tomatoes. They're supposed to be chopped and added to a cream sauce that's made with the chicken broth. As written, this recipe is incomplete and needs further editing.

Looks interesting but the photo is confusing. Angel hair is what the recipe calls for but it looks like linguini. "Slice the breasts thinly". The pic looks like a whole breast. Anyone have a picture of the recipe?

Where does the chicken broth and base come in?At the end of cooking the chicken breasts?

@scarlet102000, Great tips on things to add. Let us know if it turned out and your thoughts. Thanks!

This recipe looks a bit unusal-not sure why but seems like it would be something to try. I would also add some chopped broccoili or peas for nutrition and color. I will add a bit of crushed red pepper flakes for a little kick as well.
