Top notch! I ate this the other night at TGI Friday's with my boyfriend and we split the entree. It was the perfect serving for us two (came with two medium pieces of chicken as the recipe requires), so I do not agree that this makes 4 servings. For four people, definitely double the chicken / marinade. I used polska kielbasa instead of chicken as you can see in the photo I uploaded. I will be making this again; thanks!
did find the cheese... shredded too, it melted beautifully underneath everything.substituted American cheese for mild cheddar slices. yummy. I was very impressed. tasted as good as at the restaurant. sorry couldn't load a picture cause we ate it all. Next time I'll photograph the outcome before its devoured.
I've never had this dish at TGIFriday's, but my husband has. So I'll take his word for it that he loved this copycat and it was close to the real thing. I loved the pepper medley a lot. The flavors were really good together.
