This was really good! I wanted to use barbeque sauce but when I started to prepare the meal realized I was out so I subbed a creamy balsamic dressing. On taste alone I would probably give it 4 stars but the ease of preperation definitely bumps it up to a solid 5 :) I will most definitely be making this again and again, thank you so much for posting!
