"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!"

"I love this recipe and have made it several times. I do add 1/2 cup diced red peppers the chicken mixture for added color and flavor. I also think it needs more salt then this recipe calls for."

"I did change up the recipe a tiny bit.I used real mashed potat

oes, and I omitted the thyme and sage.I used canned peas and corn.It was pretty good.I like the swiss cheese in it.I think next time I will try stuffing on the top, in place of mashed potatoes."
