"I agree that this dish was bland, but I might make it again and try replacing the water with chicken broth, and I would also increase the chicken to 1 pound. The dish seemed too much like a side dish instead of a main dish."

"Enjoyed it a lot but thought it was a little bland so we added some soy sauce and it was just what it needed. We all had seconds."
