My husband and I really enjoyed this dish (and I almost followed the recipe - ha!) The only real change I made was to leave out the bbq sauce and we each put our own on our plates. The cilantro was a nice, fresh touch, also! My legally-bound-by-marriage food guinea pig is sometimes skeptical about my food experiments, but this was met with hearty and resounding, "This is pretty good." (And no sense of surprise in his voice.) He mentioned that it might be fun to put the filling in tortillas or even pair it with eggs for a fun brunch dish. I thought about adding mushrooms, but I forgot. Oh dang. Guess I'll just have to add them the next few times I make this :) Thanks for a great recipe. This one is actually going in the "make again" file, because 1. It's easy. 2. It's pretty tasty and 3. Did I mention it's good AND easy?

Pretty good. Not great and probably not something I'll make again.

The 5 star rating is because my husband is raving about this one. Our small town grocer did not have andouille sausage so I used hot Italian sausage (which is really more flavor than heat). I "picked" the chicken meat off a rotisserie chicken the night before, so this was pretty easy to make if you're a quick chopper. I did back the BBQ sauce down to just 2 cups (16 oz.). Choose your BBQ sauce wisely as this will heavily impact flavor. We used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce which worked well. I did forget to buy the fresh cilantro but it was still very good. Served with plain mashed potatoes to balance the intense flavors of this dish. We plan to serve leftovers as a filling in some Cuban bread brought by a friend from Florida who pays the "Cuban Bread Toll" when she visits. UPDATE: Have made this successfully several times to my family's delight. However, the last time, it was not up to par. Here's what went wrong as a cautionary tale: I used boiled chicken rather than rotisserie chicken so the chicken sort of disintegrated. Also purchased honey flavored Sweet Baby Rays by mistake instead of original Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce which made a surprisingly unhappy difference.

I think I'll try it in a mini phyllo cup as an appetizer first. I'll be back!

THIS DISH ROCKS!! I didn't have red onion so I used a yellow and didn't have a yellow bell so I used a orange and I used chicken broth in place of water. Otherwise all was the same and I'm not rocked! I will make it again and maybe for my next church meal.

Loved it! I used some spicy breakfast sausage and added a splash of Worcestershire sauce. This will absolutely be a regular in our home
