"Really enjoyed this dish. I started the veggies before adding the chicken because boneless chicken doesn't need to cook as long as the total time listed. I thought the bisque was a little too sweet, but hubby and I definitely liked this dish. Will make again, thanks for sharing!"

"I found the sauce rather sweet so I added a bit of balsamic vinegar to cut the sweetness. Also my husband suggested adding a little cream to it to mellow out the taste. The overall effect was wonderful. Everyone of my picky eaters went back for seconds!"
