this chicken was quite good but we found it to be a little bland and the chicken was a bit dry. It did help to have the veggies and sauce over the chicken. I really feel 35 minutes was too long to simmer chicken breast and if I make it again I will simmer it for only about 20 minutes. We did enjoy the veggies and the sauce. thanks for posting.
