This was really good and after simmering it didn't need to be thickened. I served it over rice and it was great that way.

I really like this just as written. I also have played around with it,using boneless breast strips, adding diced celery (because I add celery to everything), bell pepper, and jalapenos. Cilantro also makes a nice addition. I also serve over rice sometimes. Very simple, quick and satisfies my tomato sauce addiction.

This recipie was a great hit with my family. The kids loved this chicken. They said it tasted like a chicken enchilada. This recipie will make a great contribution to my recipie box to add a spice of flavor to the ordinary piece of chicken.

This recipe was a wonderful surprise! I used boneless/skinless chicken breast and it was full of flavor and melts in your mouth. I only had one can of corn, and one can of tomato sauce, so I used that and a can of stewed Italian tomatoes. With mashed potatoes this was a big hit. Thank you so much!

This was a wonderful and simple recipe. I was making it for only one person, so I followed the 2-serving recipe (I have enough left over for another meal). I added a bit more corn and I also added sliced carrot - it added a nice texture and added some body. I also used a boneless chicken breast (as many other people here seem to have done), and the flavor penetrated the chicken wonderfully. I found with the tomato sauce, there was enough salt, so I didn't add any salt. Also, since the chicken was boneless, I only let it simmmer for about half an hour instead of a full hour. All in all, this recipe was a great, simple solution to a fairly empty pantry, and resulted in a delicious meal!

This recipe was good, but I think it needs something "more." My husband thought it was great, but to me it was a little bland and I even added some poultry seasoning to the flour. I ended up adding some of the leftover flour to the tomato sauce as I felt it was still too thin after the cooking time. With some tweaking, I might like this dish better. Maybe some cayenne? It was good with mashed potatos, as suggested.

I use this all the time, it makes great left overs and works well with pork chops too!
