I did not care for this.

Super easy and tasty. I seasoned my chicken to my liking and followed the directions as followed. Not really sure how this can go wrong.

I made this tonight for dinner and was a bit disappointed. It was very bland. Maybe I need tastier caesar dressing. If I do this recipe again, I'm going to season the chicken my own way.

I found this to be delicious and easy/quick to make.

i gave it 4 stars because the chicken does need more seasoning. I like to use the mini bowties and ALWAYS use Cardinis Caesar dressing. That is a must!
