"I loved this recipe, though I ended up with a pretty different outcome! We couldn't find all the right ingredients and substituted a few hot green peppers (I think I used 2) for the pimento and used dried basil instead of fresh basil (same amount, though). It was still absolutely fantastic if you like spicy food (which I love). The sauce was still delicious and I can imagine how good it would've been w/ the right peppers. I served it with some penne and olive oil with sauted asparagus and garlic on the side. I'll definitely be cooking this one again!"- Daraji

missycomeaux 4 weeks agoDelicious! I doubled the recipe and added half a can of diced tomatoes instead of the 2nd jar of pimentos. When the chicken was browned enough in the pan I put them in the oven on 300 until I was ready for them. Maybe 15 min. served it over angle hair pasta.

Starzgirl 1 month agoSoooo good for being such a simple recipe. I used chicken tenderloins for quick cooking, instead of full chicken breasts. Easy, affordable, easy clean up, and yummy!
rphdobrski 1 month agoThis is how I made mine and it tasted like it was from the Olive Garden. 1&3/4. Cups of heavy whipping cream, 1 cup of chicken broth, 1 cup parmesan cheese, a large bunch of thinly sliced green onions, 1/2 diced tomato, chopped parsley (if you want), 1 can pimentos, 1 large tablespoon of minced garlic, 1/2 cup of flour for thickness, and 1 to 2 cups of shredded mild cheddar cheese. I also added spinach to mine. You have to add the cheese! My husband said it was my best meal yet.
cokhmatov 1 month agoSoooo amazing. Everyone loved this. We used red peppers from jar in place of pimento, and added 1/4 cup frozen peas and 1 1/2 cups cooked rice to sauce. Reduced sauce quite a bit. Amazing.

_AshlynNicole 2 months agoThis was soooooo good! I added a little more freshly ground pepper and a dash of Adobo seasoning on the chicken and in the sauce. I think next time I'm going to thicken up the sauce a bit and maybe add some garlic.
