    This is really good! I substituted a can of chicken broth for the water and bouillon because of the sodium content. I'll definitely be making this again and again. - 12/22/08

    This is great, it's quick, easy, and great tasting. I use CKN Broth instead of bullion, reduced sodium fat free zesty italian dressing, and Kroger brand whole grain boil in bag brown rice (10 min), I also add crookneck squash, zucchini, Aspragus, onion, red orange & yellow bell peppers and mushrooms - 3/10/10

    Awesome flavor. Doubled the recipe to use for another dinner and only used 1 cube. Plenty. Might even try w/out next time as perhaps the dressing has enough salt. Chicken was tender. Used frozen pepper strips, thawed, for ease. Will definitely make this one again. - 1/1/09

    I will be trying this again with ingredients closer to what is listed. I didn't have the low-fat Italian dressing, so mine was a little greasy. Plus, it was not the zesty dressing. Also, I didn't have dijon, so I looked up a recipe and ended up substituting powdered mustard and some vinegar. - 1/10/10

    My husband and I loved this. It is easy and inexpensive. We added a little more of the Italian dressing and dijon mustard sauce, about another 1/4 cup. - 5/29/09

    We had this tonight and it is good. Next time I would add a bit more spice to kick it up some, but over all, it is a filling satisfying meal - 4/13/09

    Yum, I made a slightly altered version, cooked rice, layered
    on the cooked chicken. I thickened the dressing so it was like a sauce put on top and baked to set and heat through. Thanks for the inspiration. - 3/11/09
