"Loved this recipe! ---used boneless skinless chicken breast"

Reviewed Feb. 10, 2013

"I was surprised by how tasty this dish was with it having such few ingredients and spices. It also didn't take long to make. FYI: I didn't have any rosemary so I used thyme instead which I read could be used as a substitute."

"I've made this wonderful dish several times! Everyone loves it. Once, I only had Mexican tomatoes in the cupboard, so I changed the spices and cheese to match and it turned out beautifully that way too. I cook it a bit longer, for even more tender chicken. YUM!"

"I really liked this dish! I used boneless chicken thighs because I couldn't find bone in chicken thighs so I reduced the cooking time. Fantastic! Even my picky 6 year old ate it!"

"This was excellent! May add extra beans and diced tomatoes next time and as stated some extra seasonings. Overall, will make again and love this dish!"
