MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 14, 2009

My husband LOVED this recipe. It was so easy, but I would recommend maybe dividing the recipe into two portions because it really makes a lot.

My kids did like it. But they were unsure about the chicken. It was cooked but since it was steamed cooked..it was all white. Next time I am going to grill the chicken first..to give it a nice brown color to it.
