Lemon-Chicken Rigatoni with Broccoli
I used this recipe as a guide, but was trying to use up what was in the cupboard. I, too, ended up doubling the broth, even though I hadn't read the reviews ahead like I usually do. Instead of rotisserie chicken, I used a pre-marinated lemon pepper breast (a little under a pound) and really enjoyed the flavor it added (skipped the add'l lemon) - I could definitely see where it might be bland with unseasoned chicken. I also used about a pound of asparagus instead of the broccoli and smoked gouda instead of parmesan. I was the only one home, but I enjoyed it. I'd make it again, but would do something similar or follow some of the other suggestions to "jazz it up" a little.

Green Chile Chicken Lasagna
I made this for the first time tonight, and found that the flavor was really great, but for my tastes at least, the proportions were a little off. I'm not a huge parmesan cheese fan to begin with, so there was too much for me. Next time, I'd probably put less or none on top and just stick with what's already mixed in. Also, I found myself wishing for more of the chicken/chile flavor and might try to increase this next time. Overall, though, I really liked it and would make it again for sure!
