Remarkably, my chicken-finicky toddler had three helpings and after my husband took one bite, he immediately said "this is amazing". When that happens, I know I have a winner!
Now at least with this recipe, "quick" and "easy" comes a bit of a sacrifice in terms of nutrition. It's definitely on the saltier side because of the canned soup and the italian dry salad dressing mix. You can lower the sodium a bit by using the reduced-salt soup, which is what I will do next time I make this....and there will definitely be a next time!
