    I made this for dinner and found it to be rather bland... I added some salsa to it, salsa makes everything taste better : ) - 5/14/08

    This is good as is, but I added some diced tomato as well. I also made it on the stove top rather than baking. - 5/13/08

    I healthy sauted this in 2 TBSP of water in a skillet on the stove top. It was flavorful and moist--and i was able to eliminate using foil which i don't use in my household. - 5/13/08
