Sounded a bit bland so I've added onion and garlic along with onion powder and garlic powder. Salt and pepper to taste. Then towards the end, I put bread crumbs on top and put it back in the oven to brown. Was great to me. Just needed a little doctoring.

This was okay. Its a little bland. I would definitely saut about a cup of onions next time with the chicken. It is a very easy weeknight supper dish though.

I cut in half for two and did not have the pimentos. Added chopped onion and browned it with the chicken. Per some comments about it being bland, I also used my homemade seasoned salt to kick up the flavor. On my second helping I put some shredded cheddar on top. Bottom line...very good but for my tastes I am glad to have upped the flavor by adding some spicy zip.

Simple, very good. Goes nicely with peas and carrots for a vegetable.

I double this, I also saute EVVO onions, garlic, fresh mushroom and white wine I added mild Peppadew peppers and chopped a can green chilies chopped, poultry seasoning

This recipe looks great,will make. This recipe looks great, will make

This is very similar to a dish that I prepare. Instead of pimrntos, I use finely chopped red, and yellow, bell peppers.

Didn't particularly care for this receipe. It was VERY bland, needs something added, but not sure what. Just kind of tasteless.

YES it needs a little extra flavor add either1/2 block softened cream cheese , 1/2 cup sour cream or 3 Tablespoons real mayonaise also can add 1 teaspoon sage To soften cream cheese unwrap place on plate and zap in microwave 20 sceonds comes out soft and ready to use!

I added some chopped onions and 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning. Came out excellent. You might also add a little thyme.

It is a little bland, but I found Italian bread crumbs dressed it up nicely. I like the idea of using Bell's or similar seasoning for this; I'll probably add it next time. That said, sometimes simple is good and I like simple.

Try adding some herbs... Mrs Dash or Cavender's are good herb blends that add lots of flavor

Can't wait to try this recipe. Especially love the fact that mushrooms are in it .

My husband really liked it. He took the leftover to work the next day. He said was better the next. Thank You Mr."OOH IT'S SOO GOOOD!!' FOOD.
