Tasteless and Dry, Member StacyBarton

This casserole had absolutely no flavor. I prepared it once exactly as recipe instructs . . . no taste! Also, the recipe did not state whether or not to cover when baking, so I did not cover it and the chicken was dry and crunchy. I didn't think there was enough sauce. I prepared it a second time, making 1-1/2 times the amount of sauce it called for, plus I added salt, garlic granules and 1/2 cup white wine to the sauce, and I covered with foil while baking . . . still pretty tasteless, but not dry. I would not make this casserole again!
