MY REVIEW

"bland, chicken had to be "finished off" in the microwave to ensure fully cooked"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 14, 2010

"This recipe is a good start for a novice cook, has great potential to add your own flavors. I added a garlic clove, doubled the spices and it still came out somewhat bland and I look forward to doctoring it up the next time."

MY REVIEW

"I agree that I would up the spices and the garlic."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 3, 2009

"I think the key to this recipe is the size of the chicken breasts. I think this is made for the chicken breasts you buy in a big bag in the freezer section. I had fresh breasts from the grocery store, and if I were to make this again, I'd slice the breasts in half length-wise before cooking them.As for the sauce, I'd use 2 cans of diced tomatoes, and double the spices, and maybe bump up the garlic a bit."
