"This is awesome. I used boneless chicken thighs instead of the bone-in. I also doubled the beans and tomatoes for leftovers. Tastes great."

"I was surprised by how tasty this dish was with it having such few ingredients and spices. It also didn't take long to make. FYI: I didn't have any rosemary so I used thyme instead which I read could be used as a substitute."

"I've made this wonderful dish several times! Everyone loves it. Once, I only had Mexican tomatoes in the cupboard, so I changed the spices and cheese to match and it turned out beautifully that way too. I cook it a bit longer, for even more tender chicken. YUM!"

"I really liked this dish! I used boneless chicken thighs because I couldn't find bone in chicken thighs so I reduced the cooking time. Fantastic! Even my picky 6 year old ate it!"

"This was really good! I think when Imake it again, maybe I'll add a few more spices to give it more "zip," but I liked the flavor of the chicken and tomato/bean combination."
