"I didnt find this to have too much flavor. It was a good meal but probably not something I would make again. Although I loved how easy & fast it was to make."

"I used canned chicken, I had no snow peas so used chopped celery, and put on chopped lettuce leaves, so to be able to eat easier, and used sliced almonds as I don't like cashews. Was Great!!!"
