"Super easy and relatively tasty. Definitely a go-to when I'm short on time. Thanks for the recipe!"
"This is very tasty. The chicken ends up very juicy too."
"Delicious, easy to make and healthy. All the things I look for in a recipe. I put it over wheat pasta. Even just the veggies and sauce with pasta would be great too. I will definitely make this again and again!"
