It was fast and easy but I was disappointed in the taste. I followed the recipe to the letter and I didn't care for the taste, nor did my husband and son. The parm cheese didn't seem to mix well at the end with the dressing, for some odd reason. It had a strange taste (I used fresh parm cheese). The carrots also did not cook down soft either. After reading the other reviews, I will try this recipe again but I will use some of the ideas suggested by the other cooks - cover the dish while cooking, some additional seasoning on the chicken and different cheese topping.
