"The first time I made this recipe, I liked it but felt that the chicken didn't absorb enough flavor. The next time, I cut the chicken breasts into strips and that helped. (The presentation isn't quite as nice as giving each person a whole piece of chicken, but it tastes better.)"

"This was just marginal okay. From the reviews I thought this was going to be better. No offense intended, but this was really blah."
