MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 18, 2014

"My husband isn't a big chicken fan, but he loves this recipe."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 30, 2013

"This recipe was quite easy and went together quickly. The flavor of the sauce was good. Unfortunately, the chicken was pretty bland. I agree with the previous reviewer; additional flavor is needed and some Cajun seasoning couldn't hurt."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 22, 2012

"I actually found that this needed more flavour. Maybe some cajun seasoning would have helped."
