Reviews for Chicken with Country Gravy
"So good! This is a keeper for our family. The chicken has great flavor and we even put the gravy on our mashed potatoes."
"Fabulous! I omitted the gravy just to cut down on fat and calories. I also did not have any cornflakes on hand, so I used crunched up ritz crackers. The chicken turned out moist and delicious!"
"quick and easy recipe, full of flavor. There was not quite enough drippings for the gravy; however, butter was an easy substitution."
"I made this recipe for 4 servings and my family wanted more :)Going to make this recipe again without a doubt."
