    it turned out pretty good. a nice switch for us, we always eat chicken. the sun dried tomatoes are the best part of the flavor.

    This was a good recipe. Had good flavor and was fairly easy to make. My husband, who is quite picky, even liked it. I am unable to rate this recipe for some reason but I would give it a 9 out of 10.

    I LOVED IT! This dish was fairly simple to make, looks so colorful on the plate and the flavor was wonderful! I will keep this one and make it again for sure. This dish is missing nothing.

    I can’t begin to tell you how much my family liked this dish. No one even knew it was low fat. I was fairly easy to make. I’ve been asked by my pickiest of all eaters, my son, to make this dish again.

  • Teresa

    I made this for my husband, 15 y/o and my 6y/o. It was unanimous… GREAT DINNER!

  • Pat

    This is really, really good. I forgot the cheese, but it wasn’t missed. I will definitely make this again and again.

    This is a favorite dish at my home. Everyone including my 13 yr old son who is very picky loves this dish. Even after I told him it was low fat, he didn’t care. Very easy to make too!!
