    This is a healthy, easy-to-prepare recipe, but could definitely use more/better seasonings to keep it from being bland. - 1/1/10

  • I used chicken breast instead of pork and added a touch of Spike seasoning - it doesn`t need anything else as the natural flavors are great. My kids loved it! - 10/26/10
