It was soo yummy! The prob that one reviewer said is true. It's hard to keep the corn on the bread. It rolls off. I will use this as a relish in my salads. YUM. "

These were okay. 50 Minutes was waaay to long. Thank god I checked at 30 minutes..and there were borederline burned. Outside was too crispy..and the actual mushrooms lacked flavor. Next time I'll sprinkle a little salt and pepper. The filling was great. I'll use a combo of sweet and spicy sausage next time. I have a lot of leftover filling"

May 21, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was yummy! I cooked for the alloted time but my cake came out on the dry side..and a little bit burned. Don't know what's that about..but when I cut out the burned edges and put on the whip cream. Yum. A tad bit dense but it did remind me of carrot cake. Very good. I have to figure out how to make it a smudge more moist. "

I'm giving this recipe a 4 because the chicken breast was so outstanding. I loved it! The sauce is another story. First of all there is too much of it. Secondly..it didn't have a wow factor (the pieces of pepper is off putting. A store bought jar is fine! Also..there is a lot of waste. Just use 2 eggs, half the flour and less panko. Otherw"

This was so delish. I used skirt steak instead and increased the pepper flakes and garlic for more punch. I agree with everyone else..7 minutes on each side is medium well. next time..only 4 minutes. Flavors were awesome. "

These were so good. I couldn't stop eating them. The only thing..the ranch taste seemed subtle. It didn't pop as much. Instead of on the chicken I might consider putting more in the flour. Make sure you season your chicken with garlic, salt, and pepper. Thank goodness I did. Otherwise it would be bland. ""
