MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 1, 2013

I liked this recipe a lot. I thought it was easy to make because it was a one dish meal. I don't like thyme or basil so I left all of those seasonings out and used a product I found at the health food store called "Vegesal". I can't cook anything without it!

MY REVIEW

I made this dish last night and it was excellent. It does take a while to prepare since there are two parts to the recipe. I will make this again but because my husband is not fond of cream sauces, I will only prepare it occasionally. Here is the link to my review and photos:

Love this Recipe! Have also made it for friends who just had babies, both have asked for the recipe. I just up the veggies to 3 cups.

I agree with other reviewers--not a bad dish, but lots of work. I have better chicken pot-pie-type recipes that I will make in the future.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 23, 2012

Full of flavor and a family favorite! The crumb topping really makes this dish and can be made with any type of bread. This recipe is also very flexible. I've used leftover turkey and grilled chicken in place of the tenderloins. One time I replaced the mozzarella with light Swiss cheese and another time added additional vegetables such as green beans and corn. All worked wonderfully. My family isn't a huge fan of thyme, so I reduced to 1/4 teaspoon. Sometimes I double and freeze so I have a fast, nutritious dinner I can pop in the oven mid-week.
