    Made this with shrimp in place of chicken. Agree that flavor was rather mild, so I added some salt and pepper at the end to bring the flavors up a notch. Polenta recipe from Fresh Food Fast was super rich and delicious (using parmesan). DO NOT OMIT THE OLIVES - they are key to keeping the flavors exciting in this one.

    This is one of our absolute favorite recipes of all time! We typically skip the kalamata olives and add a generous pinch of white pepper for a nice kick. I can't imagine how anyone could call this a bland recipe - unless you don't use good plum tomatoes, which are much more flavorful than many looks-good-tastes-like-water grocery store varieties. This is always a big hit with guests.

    tried this recipe and didn't like it. It was a little bland to me. It could be improved upon.

    Easy. Mild flavor but tasty. I added extra cheese to the polenta. Best corned meal mush I've ever had. :)

    I added a can of stewed tomoatos, which added a lot of flavor. I also doubled the garlic and olives. Delicious over the polenta!!!

    I was diasppointed by this one. I thought the garlic and olives would bring great flavor, but we found it was lacking in flavor. THe chicken was bland. Maybe adding more olives and possibly an onion it would kick up the flavor?
