"This was not too bad. I didn't have the lemon-pepper or garlic pepper seasoning, so I improvised, but other than that everything was the same. The texture of the sauce was a little too thick for my family."

"This is one of the best recipes from TOH that I have ever made. I made it for the first time years ago and my whole family loves it. My husband gets excited when I make it. Next time I make it, I would like to try it with chicken. Highly recommend."
