MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 17, 2014

This was delicious. I cut up my chicken into medallions to save a little on cooking time and we used frozen asparagus since it's not in season right now. This tasted wonderful and was a comforting and satisfying meal.

Delicious and very tender chicken. I didn't have dill so I used tarragon. Also served it with white rice. Will definitely make it again.

Very moist, tender chicken. Used a little wine instead of some of the broth.

The first time I made this it was good, the second time I added 1/2 cup white cooking wine and it was perfect. My new favorite chicken recipe.
