MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 27, 2012

"I made this for my family and none of us liked it. The chicken is moist but the sauce is so bland and boring. I wish it had more flavor. I won't be making this again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 9, 2011

"The chicken was so tender and moist, but the sauce was on the bland side, despite the garlic and onion salt. Next time, and I will make it again, I will add more garlic, and italian flavored tomato sauce."
