    I added extra garlic. Changed eggplant to yellow squash.I also used Mrs. Dash spicey or it would have been bland. Chicken is close to tastlss and needs help. - 2/1/08

    I made this recipe as is, but it seemed really bland to me. Next time I'll add bay leaf and oregano...needs more garlic than listed too. - 11/15/07

    I also made a few substitutions based on my farm share this week: used fresh tomatoes, added some patypan squash, added oregano and marjoram. Bu the basic recipe was this one, and it's delicious. Tastes bad for you. - 8/22/07

  • A bit on the bland side. Needs more spices or hot sauce put on at the table. I would like more zucchini and mushrooms. - 11/17/11

  • I used a pound of skinless, boneless chicken thighs, but felt the meat got lost amid the abundance of vegetables. I also felt it was somewhat bland and could use a bit more spicing up. - 9/10/11

  • Just fixed this today and it was wonderful. I put in some sea salt and left out the mushrooms. Had it over whole wheat penne pasta. - 7/18/10

  • Delish! Tossed everythin in a crock pot and let it simmer overnight. I think kept the
    Crockpot on high but took the lid off to cook off some of the liquid. Chicken breast can get a bit dried out but the sause is really good so it's ok. - 6/1/10

  • Bland and boring - 11/2/09

  • OK, the recipe sounds bland. The reason I checked the site is I've never baked it before and wanted to know how long, temp. etc. My recicpe is in olive oil, add a variety of peppers, yellow squash too, mushrooms, capers, green and black olives. Yea, raises the sodium a bit but use fresh tomatoes. - 9/17/09

  • I did not have any eggplant and used vegetable pasta sauce instead of whole tomatoes and served it over brown rice. It was delicious. - 3/15/09

  • Delicious! So very filling. I doubled the amount of spices just to add a touch more flavor and then topped it all of with just a bit of parmesan. These are leftovers I'm looking forward to. - 11/13/08

  • I love ratatouille to begin with, so I thought I would like this recipe. It was very good, but, in my opinion, the eggplant didn't get cooked enough. Next time, I would add that to the chicken first, and give it extra time. Based on earlier comments, I also added more garlic and a few herbs. - 9/7/08

  • I loved it, and even my 4 picky boys ate it without (too much) complaining! I will definitely make this again soon, with more fresh zucchini and eggplant from my friend's garden! - 8/22/08

  • This recipe was huge! I had to use a wok, because even my soup pots were not big enough for all the ingredients! I felt like it needed a lid, as I was worried about all the vegs not being done. I am wondering, should I drain the juice from the chicken, and whatever other juices I end up with? - 8/21/08
