    This recipie was super easy and yummy! I made it for lunch and it was perfect! I also added a tomato to liven it up a bit more! Be sure to used plenty of lemon pepper for more taste!  -  23 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Pretty tasty, though I did take some liberty with the recipe. I used a mix of pastas, spirals, egg noodles, and whole wheat egg noodles, for more of a salad feel. I cooked the broccoli in a separate pan with a thin layer of water. I never boil veggies because it leeches the nutrients. I used most of a fresh lemon and a liberal amount of pepper on the chicken as it cooked in a separate pan. When I mixed it all together it still wasn't strong enough so I added a great deal more pepper, lemon, salt, some fresh cilantro, and a healthy dose of olive oil. Now that's tasty! Next time I'll try cooking the broccoli and chicken in the same pan for a while to mix flavors.  -  12 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Awesome! Very light tasting and a refreshing change from those heavy pasta salads.  -  21 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
