Reviews for Chicken Supreme with Gravy
"I would love to try this but I would like a serving size of about 8-10. I guess I can just use the ingredients and downsize it"
"I make this for our church suppers and it's one of the favorites! I would recommend adding less milk until you see if you need it all or it could get soupy. I serve this with mashed potatoes, gravy, a vegetable and cranberry sauce. It's a real crowd pleaser!"
"I'm feeding the homeless this week... thrilled to have a recipe that I can double and feed 150!! Thank you!"
"I agree! It sounds AWESOME!But I have 3 in my family.Cindy"
"Sounds good but shouldn't this recipe be scaled down a bit? Most people don't cook for 70-80 very often."
