View Full Version : Review: Chicken with Chipotle-Tomato Sauce and Ziti
01-19-2001, 10:00 AM
I know this received some blah reviews a few days ago, but I thought I'd post a positive one. I thought this was a great, fast, after-work meal. I altered the recipe by mincing up 2 of the chipotle chilis, which may have made a difference in the dish's "zing." I defintely would repeat this.
BethH - thanks for the re-review! I wondered about making this but decided to put it on "the back burner" after the previous reviews. I'll add 2 chipotle peppers as you suggested!!!
I agree! It wasn't the most amazing, unusual dish I've ever made, but it was easy and fast and tasted good! Leftovers were good for lunch too.

...i am eating this right now, so this review is hot & fresh!
this is allright. actually it is better than allright. it a a decent monday night dish. i used 1 chipotle with adobo sauce and it is flavorful, a little smokey & has a slight hint of heat to it, but i would maybe add another 1 next time as i like it hot. use your judgement on the amount.
it did take me longer than the "30 minutes or less" that CL states. it took me around 45. there is all that chopping to do. if you prep the veggies & meat ahead of time, it will make dinner a breeze.
really looking forward to leftovers for work lunches!
