I didn't have diced tomatoes, so I just added some pasta sauce, it was slightly, just slightly runny. I didn't add the peppers, but I cooked the chicken with garlic, oregano, and Italian seasonings. I also added mushrooms, and turkey pepperoni, and used penne as the pasta. I added grated parmesan cheese as well. It was delicious!

Definitely add fresh basil leaves. And use the chicken from a roaster you can buy at any supermarket. Fabulous.

I added extra garlic and Italian seasoning when I made this and it was excellent. Next time I plan on adding a little chopped onion to give a little more flavor. Even my pickiest eater thought it was great. This has now been added into my dinner rotation.

This recipe is great. I put in spinach and Italian seasoning like another reviewer suggested and sometimes a little more cheese in the sauce.
