    Oh my god this is so yummy. I did add chicken seasonings, as someone had mentioned it in a review. The smell was delicious and it also tasted it. I will be making this again.

    The people in my family who don’t usually eat salad really enjoyed it, so works for me.

    OMG! This chicken is the best! I used all the marinade on the chicken, then cooked it up into a risotto instead of a salad. It was gorgeous. Even baby loved it! Will make again!
