Chicken Schnitzel and Smashed Mustard Potatoes

This was in the newest CL, so I didn't think to check the reviews. Had I, I would have known it got 5 stars therefore we would not like it.  On their site, I gave it 2 because we liked the potatoes.

Overally, the chicken tasted like a plain "fried" piece of chicken.  We both thought with a roll, cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo it would be good. D said, on a blue cheese Buffalo burger as well (I'll take his word for it.)  We both thought it was similar to Yolanda's Famous Chicken, except Yolanda's Chicken is actually good.

Overall, we would have the potatoes again, but definitely not the chicken.
