We liked this. We thought this was flavorful. I made a few changes I used only 3 chicken breast and after marinating I sliced the chicken so it only takes a few minutes to cook before adding all the other ingredients. I also didn't use all the salt, it doesn't need it.
The sauce was quite runny on this. I think the sauce needs to be thickened. I also thought this needed more seasoning since it was quite bland. Wasn't a fan of this one.
i did not try it. I am disappointed at how many recipes I am finding using prepared sauce mixes. Most people don't cook using anything but fresh ingredients. Even those who use mixes probably don't keep them on hand. I suggest that we encourage this site to provide a separate heading for recipes using additives that are not part of the common pantry.
It was a very bland recipe. Needed more spices. DH doesn't want me to make it again unless I can add something to flavor it up. Maybe onions or diced tomatoes with basil. Lots leftover and had to throw it out.
