Family loved it!

Taste so good

Dish was delicious... Even my son who doesn't eat ANYTHING gave it a try and didn't complain. Was really good. Made a generous amount. I will make this again. Was great that there was only on...

Yummy! Could not find the rice side so just used herb/butter rice-a-roni in the box. Was delicious! Family keeps asking me to make it again.
