We found this to be quite bland and we both made regular use of the salt shaker at dinner (this is very unusual for my husband who almost never adds salt to food). I would recommend adding salt at some point in the recipe. We used the chopped chicken option, but also added broccoli florets and 2 large chopped tomatoes to increase the nutritional value of the dish. I would have added chopped, cooked asparagus, but there would not have been room in the baking dish.

This was a nice dish for a cold day! I used chicken and, since we like a bit more flavor, added some dried parsley and garlic powder. Thanks!
