"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."

"To be honest I used this as my guide and made to use up the week's lefover's. So it was changed in these ways, I used chicken thigh meat, I used left-over Ramen Corn Chowder and green beans. Otherwise I held to the recipe. It was really good, a great way to use up odds and ends, too few to get another meal out of but enough to combine and make another. Thank you for these recipes, they really help!"
