very good


We liked it very much and deemed it a "do again". I might add corn and more thyme than called for. Even with the 5 pieces of bacon, it could use some salt as well. I will also dice the sun-dried tomatoes to make them more of an accent than a featured flavor. A great use of left over smoked chicken.
