"Very good flavor. I did make a few minor changes. I just sprinkled the Cajun seasoning on, used the whole cans of soup and green chilies, increased the water it 1/2 C and added the lemon juice to taste"

"I added extra season to the chicken for flavor and I used all the soup to have more sauce for the rice. This recipe is quick and easy and is one I go to when I don't want to be in the kitchen too long."

MY REVIEW

"This recipe was good. I would make it again for sure. We do make our own cajun seasoning from Emeril recipe and used this on thin cut chicken cutlets taking care not to over cook, instead of the larger chicken breast halves. This gave me servings for 5 people which was plenty when serving with rice, vegatable and a salad. However, the sauce was milder than expected so next time I plan to add a bit of serrano pepper for a bit more heat."
