Rated 3 out of 5 by from This dinner, is pretty good. This dinner, is pretty good. It's messy, but worth it. I used one yellow and one red pepper, and added a green zucchini. Also I seasoned this dish with italian seasoning, garlic, black pepper, seasoning salt, dried onions (would have used fresh, but I didn't have any); and I also added little chili powder. I also put in half a can of water (i used the tomato can) I def. recommend adding the extra water to it. Next time around, I am going to put some pesto sauce and more chili powder to give it more flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I altered this some for my family's tastes. I altered this some for my family's tastes. I started with some minced onion, pepper flakes and garlic in my olive oil. I browned my chicken and added some left over spaghetti sauce b/c my husband doesn't like diced tomato. They won't eat red peppers either. We had this over white rice. I think next time I'll use brown rice to make it healthier. I added a little extra oregano at the end to boost the flavor and everyone enjoyed it.

It was very tomatoey as you'd expect, but I wasn't very impressed. I used skinless bonless chicken breasts instead of legs. It was alright to try, but I'd have to say that the bread and veggies that I served with it were the best part of the meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was really easy and tasted great! This was really easy and tasted great! I used drumsticks and the whole can of tomato sauce, and I added a half cup of water and some frozen chopped onion. Next time, I will use boneless chicken breasts or tenders to make it easier for the kids to eat. It was perfect served over rice, but pasta would also be good!

I know of something simailer to this but the twist of red pepper instead of green sounded like a good idea. I did add to this with 1 small green pepper and 1 small yellow cut into thin strips. I perferred the added bonus of the other two peppers included.

Yes the sodium is very high and one way to lower that is to you Lower Sodium or No Sodium added tomato products. They cost a little more than regular tomato products, but they still work good and you can add salt at the table if you would like.

I added my own seasonings to this (adobo and sofrito, which are hispanic seasonings with salt), and it was still lacking on the flavor/salt side. Wasn't bad, just did not have much a flavor at all. Tomato sauce and chicken...that's it.
