Used thin cut chicken breast because I couldn't find cutlets, but over all this was a fine dish. I made some lentils for a side and it was delightful. definately easy and tasty though the sauce leaves something to be desired.""

as usual I like some texture so I left the veggies a bit chunky which changes the visual but I still had a great result. Used more than the recomended cheese but it only made to soup tastier.""

okay I'm not perfect and probably did something horidly wrong, but these turned out far too moist (i packed the patties pretty well but they were so liquidy that they all fell apart) The flavor is fine but I ended up with sloppy lose meat sandwiches.""

left the puree a bit less than smooth to add some texture. I really enjoyed the overall flavor and hints of heat. A good quick winter soup.""

The vingered onions were good, the yogurt/avacado spread was better with some chunks in it (and a bit more pepper than traditional), over all a nice sandwich that i will have again.""

I had hoped for better. I was sweet, a bit to much so at times, but nothing really balanced it. I was sadly disappointed."

Maybe it was just our chili powder or a good fresh jalepeno, but it was very spicy when I made it. All in all a decent thing but I was not impressed enough to add it into the rotation."

I didn't make the dressing for the veggies but they are great just crunchy and fresh. I did put the lime juice in the sour cream and that was a brilliant thing."

been here tried this. it was a decent thing but it was so uninteresting I was nearly put to sleep. gave away all my extras rather than have it for lunch."

Flavorful and filling but all in all just average. I had a hard time playing find the bay leaves at the end, a food game I hate with a passion. though I might make this one again, it certainly isn't going into full rotation."

overall, not bad I think the chicken really took on some flavor during that simmer. Since I make food for dinner and eat the second serving for lunch, I can say that I skipped the ricotta for my day 2 and it was still wonderful. I served it with a dark multigrain bread which complimented the dish nicely. my one fix was that i couldn't find any...

Wow how good is this?!?! The tomato sauce melds into the melty cheese so it isn't soggy, you can mix it up with changes in the veggies, meats, and cheeses. I used some Milano salami and loved it. this is so simple I gave it to a friend of mine with 2 kids and a full time job and now she is making it instead of ordering pizzas on friday nights."

Reviewed Chicken with Apple, Onion and Cider Sauce

Apr 11, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

what should I say? The flavors just didn't work for me. It is a perfectly servicable dish but I don't think I will ever make it again. I normally wait until I have the second serving for lunch the next day but unless this one becomes amazing in the reheat. I hold out no hope for this oldly mismatched dish."

I was not overly impressed. For me it was far too much broth for the over all ingredients. The flavors are good and balanced but there is I guess I wanted more extra veggies. If I try this one again it will have some extra add ins."

Apr 4, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Wow! this was an amazing soup. I rendered the bacon a bit longer to make it a bit crisper, but everyone who got to try it was in love. And the cheese toasts were killer. The Dijon adds just the right unexpected kick to this side. I had to make a double batch of them because we kept fighting over them."

Overall I really liked this one. Just a few minor modifications made it work really well. I ignored the timing to fry the capers, it took a bit longer than two minutes to get them crispy, but the crunch was an excellent addition. Second, I don't see why I can't use diced tomatoes rather than the whole slightly crushed ones. It imparted the same...
