MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 8, 2016

"Followed recipe exactly, Although it did not set up, was very soupy. Will try again and use my own judgement on milk/flour or cornstarch ratio. Gravy was very tasty, but to give dish a bit more substance will add some peppers, mushrooms, peas, etc. next time.

Since I seem to be the only reviewer with the soupy problem, a part of it maybe it was the dish I used. It was a 2 quart casserole, but it was round, so appears from the picture that it was much deeper than what is shown here. Will figure it out."

"The gravy of this recipe is absolutely scrumptious! So easy, but of all the gravies, easy or complicated, this is one of the best I've ever tasted - I found myself scooping up the remnants in the bowl with my finger like it was brownie mix! My husband agreed. I plan to use this gravy in chicken pot pie, too. Definitely put this recipe on your rotation!"
