Opinions

Potter: This one was ok. I think it came out a little bland and I feel like the tomato spinach portion could have used a little bit more. I would definitely use fresh tomatoes next time for a start. Also, make sure you're adding enough of the spices to the chicken. Because of how the dish cooks even the bacon doesn't have a lot of flavor. It's not a bad dish and pretty quick to throw together, just make sure you spice to your own taste. 

Katie: I enjoyed this dish a lot. The tomatoes and spinach were cooked just right and the chicken stayed moist. This recipe is great too because it allows for working with it to make the flavors unique to your own dish!
