MY REVIEW

"I made this meal for my family and not only was it easy but even my picky eaters loved it. There was enough to have to meals so we ate one that night and put the other in the freezer. I may add bacon next time!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 23, 2014

"This is a dinner to be made only for me. My husband did not like it. I did! I halved the recipe, and it still made a lot. Needed lots of salt and pepper. My kind of comfort food. Oh, and don't use cheap chicken. I keep buying that generic stuff at Kroger and it's always rubbery. I don't think it's my cooking......but maybe."
