    Wow...the calories are really high... - 3/16/09

    I disagree. Think about it... it's a complete dinner - you don't need anything else with it. It's very filling and I made the servings quite big. Depending on how hungry you are you might even get 3 or 4 servings out of the recipe - it's a matter of taste really.

  • I cut the recipe in 4ths and still had more than enough food, plus leftovers. My husband rated it "ok". I liked the chicken and potatoes a lot, but the kidney beans I could have deleted. I added asparagus, corn, green beans, and cauliflower which is different than the recipe calls for, but good. - 3/16/09

  • Seems like an awful lot of food, and the nutrients are being cooked out. I agree that the canned veggies might be rinsed to lessen the sodium, and 6-7 potatoes is a lot for 2 people. Some tweaking and I bet this will be a great meal! - 3/16/09

    Keep in mind they're new potatoes - they're about a third of a normal potato!
    But I'd agree in retrospective that the servings should be a bit smaller than that. If you make 3-4 servings out of it it would lower the calories a whole lot as well.

  • Sounds pretty good although it is high in calories (just need to budget the rest of the day appropriately). I love that it's full of veggies and protein. However, the amount of sodium is scary- I would omit the salt and make sure to rinse canned veggies/use no salt added if possible. Thanks! - 3/16/09
