    Quorn is not vegan, just so you all know. But this is a very tasty dish... look for vegan chick subsititues. - 7/29/08

    have made it several times. prepared as posted - it was okay, not great. but since then i have taken out the meat substitute and added more veggies (peppers, zucchini, whatever is on hand). yum! plus there are tons of leftovers for lunches during the week. also, goes well with vegan cornbread. - 8/4/08

    I made this with Near East whole wheat roasted garlic and pecan cous cous and Morning Star crumbled sausage instead of chicken. Very delicious! - 7/21/08
