    This recipe was just what I was looking for.Like others had mention it was a little bland so I seasoned the chicken prior to cooking(salt,pepper,onion powder)this made it really good.I also added s&p and parsley to the whole mixture along withsome of the parmesan cheese,top with more cheese and it was perfect!!!Definately a keeper.  -  26 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wonderful flavor. My husband asked me to make it again and he usually isn't a big tomato fan!  -  21 Aug 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Good, though husband complained that it needed more flavor. Next time, i will try to figure out the right spices to jazz it up with, it would be fantastic with just a little bit more zing.  -  30 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
