We added a rotisserie chicken breast, cubed, to the layers. This made four 2 cup main dish servings. If we served it to guests, we would definitely double it.

Although I enjoyed the recipe, my guests that I served it to didn't say anything about it. I would make it again, but probably not for a party.

Loved the mixture of tastes and texture. To the individual who was confused about the brown sugar - recipe says to layer half of the ingredients, meaning you put 1 tsp. of brown sugar on each of the two layers.

I'm confused about what to do with the brown sugar. The recipe only calls for 2 teaspoons, so it doesn't make sense to me that it would be layered with the cheese. Any corrections?
