"There are two kinds of people in this world" - those who like water chestnuts, and those who do not! SO I liked this a lot - my fiancé less so. And I do admit, something imparted a different taste, and it might have been the chestnuts. I would make this again, but skip the water chestnuts, and I would ignore the seasonings and amounts given in the ingredients and just do it myself to taste, with whatever strikes my fancy. I like the quantity of vegetables in this, I might replace the water chestnuts with sliced carrots. I did use an 8 oz package of fresh sliced mushrooms instead of the canned - I do not like mushrooms much at all but I find fresh to be far more appetizing. We did not have any sides with this as it has so much in it already!
