    This was NOT good. It was not flavorful and the microwaving made the chicken tough and chewy. Yuck!

    This was average to husband liked it more than me. I will make it again, however, because it was so quick and I always have the ingredients on hand. While it won't be a recipe I crave, it can't be beat for a quick, healthy dinner.

    I love the time factor, it was so quick but it did not have much flavor and due to being fixed in the microwave it had no color so it did not look appetizing. I ended up placing it in the oven under the broiler to give it some color.
