    In this recipe, it states that a serving is one cup. However, in your recipes for Nachos and Chicken Tostada using this recipe, in the ingredients list it says one serving is 2 cups. - 8/5/09

    Reply from CHEF_MEG (8/5/09)
    A serving size is 1 cup. Use 2 cups for the leftovers. It should have said 2 servings. Thanks for the catch!

    I thought this was really good, I don't like bell peppers so I used onion instead, and I had a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes so I used that instead. I think this would be great with almost any kind of bean you happen to have on hand. - 9/13/09

    This sounds very good. However, boneless chicken breasts are expensive (and wasteful!) What changes should be made if I were to use chicken pieces with the bone in? - 9/8/09

    Reply from CHEF_MEG (9/16/09)
    If you use a whole chicken that's been cut into parts, just use one that's a comparable size. A two-pound chicken would be the largest I would recommend using in this recipe, otherwise you'll need to add more liquid (chicken broth is a good choice). And then save your bones for stock.

    Very good. I especially like the multi-use recipe. With the planned-over tostado meal the next night, I expect I'll be making double batches of this for freezing. Side note: bell pepper is not a favorite, so one was replaced with an onion. - 8/19/09

    Note: The Salt content is wrong. I added all the salt in this recipe and it came out to 670mg so with 6 servings it's 111.6 per serving. This is incredible! I added a little more basil and Italian seasoning and cooked on high for 31/2-4 hours. Will double this next time so I can make leftover recipe - 9/10/09

    This was a pretty good recipe, although it was fairly bland. We added (faux) salt and black pepper to our dishes and that helped a bit. Also, it's not really substantial enough on its own, really needs something to accompany it, perhaps some brown rice would go well with this. - 9/23/09

    I don't know what this was really. Mine didn't look like Chef Meg's in the picture. I used fresh tomatoes but I don't know if that was the difference or not. By the time everything cooked down, it was a soupy consistency. Not what I had in mind but it was still okay and probably my fault anyway. - 9/11/09

    Enjoyed this very much. I halved the recipe. I used only 1/4 t. dried thyme (for half the recipe instead of 1/2 tsp.) . I also cut up pieces of chicken breast, boneless and skinless. Used 1 whole red pepper and omitted the yellow. Added a little V8 juice. Served over whole wheat pasta. - 9/25/09

    may want to watch the type or brand of chicken you use, many have been injected with additives and hold a lot of fluids and also can carry hidden calories, salt and carbs with the injection. I have found some brands can carry up to 25% of added fluids. - 10/12/09

  • It is hard to "stir" 6-inch boneless breasts with small pieces of other stuff. My grandmother cooked chicken and sauce separately, so I put the breasts on the bottom by pushing them down through the other ingredients; came out fine. I used raw tomatoes, peeled and seeded; cuts down on sodium. - 8/14/13

  • After reading comments about blandness, i added 1 chopped onion, 2 cloves minced garlic, a tsp rosemary, and 1/2 cup chopped black olives to make it more authentically provencal and to add more flavor. Pretty good, but next time will add a little EVOO for some healthy fat to make it more satisfying. - 7/5/13

  • Even my 2 year old enjoyed this and my husband who hates tomatoes enjoyed it too. I think it was good. I followed it entirely except for thyme because I was out. Next time I will add some Cayenne pepper and use black beans as I wasn't a fan of the cannelloni beans. - 6/12/13

  • We were not satisfied with how the texture of this turned out (compared to the picture) so we blended the herbs and seasoning with cannellini beans, 1 cup of mixed peppers and the tinned tomatoes with herbs before putting them into the slow cooker. We added another cup of mixed peppers too. - 4/30/13

  • I like a significantly more spicing - perhaps adding ginger and rosemary, or cumin and sage, or even curry powder? As is, it comes out was a bit bland for my taste. - 3/21/13

  • I've made this recipe several times, delicious ! My husband loves it. I like to thicken it a little and serve it over brown rice. - 3/20/13
