    This is good but I think it lacks a spice (red pepper? garlic? More rosemary or thyme?) but I'm not sure what. I'll keep checking the reviews to see what others may recommend but unless I figure out what it lacks, I won't make again. It's not that it wasn't good (even my 5 year old ate her helping) but I felt I had to add extra parmesean cheese to just to add more taste.  -  27 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this recipe for my mother on Mothers Day - IT WAS VERT TASTY! I added minced garlic and chopped green onions along with grilling the chicken first. The appearence of the dish was also great - perfect for a dinner party. This recipe will be added to my favorites.  -  10 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I changed this a bit to suit my taste, I added a few strips of bacon with the chicken, added Italian seasoning to the sauce as several other reviews said it needed more taste, garlic, and shrimp. Topped it with parmesan cheese and side of garlic bread! YUMMMM  -  13 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
