This is a "go to" recipe for a tasty, quick meal.
This was ok. It was missing something and there wasn't much sauce to it.
I think doubling the sauce and perhaps adding mushrooms would make it better.
It has potential... I agree with Carol 39110 -- the thyme/tarragon flavor is VERY strong and there isn't much of a sauce. But it was good enough to warrant a second try.
We did not care for the thyme/tarragon flavor. It needs more of a sauce.
Wonderful and quick! Could eat it all myself.
