This dish gets better with age! Every day it is in the fridge the tastes soak into the noodles and chicken. I make this on the weekend and take it to work with me all week. You have to love vinegar though! - 29 Sep 2008

I was disappointed by this... firstly mine doesnt look as amazing as the one in the image... secondly I had to flood it with balsamic vinegar - 18 Jan 2013

I thought this would be one of those simple dishes that ends up being really tasty, but it just wasn't at all. I like balsamic, love chicken, love capsicum...but they just didn't mesh for me here. - 24 Nov 2011
