Top Review by Annacia

This is a tasty dish that comes together easily. I chose and made it as directed it because I knew that my DH would love it. He did love it, went back for seconds and gave it 5 stars. The recipe has 4 stars because because, for me, it was under seasoned. Nancy said to feel free to spice it up but if I had then DH wouldn't even have tried it. I made the full recipe for the 2 of us and I'll add Cajun seasoning to my next serving (and DH will still be happy!). I used a small roaster out of the freezer and would recommend less time in the first bake if you are using a fryer. If you have a spiceaphobe in the family like I do just put a shaker of something with some heat in it on the table for those who wish to have it and everyone will be happy quite happy. :D
