    Delicious! It almost had an applesauce kind of taste to it, but with a slight tang. Really good. - 8/17/12

    I was a little skeptical of rhubarb and chicken, but wanted to try something different. This was great. I was surprised how the sweet/tart rhubarb and the salt of the chicken complimented each other. Yum! - 6/23/12
