The bones aggravated me. Next time I'm use boneless chicken, but that's just me. It was rich and delicious, and tasted even better the second day! I just skipped the whole "potato" part and served it in bowls, as a soup/stew....yummy.

Ahhhh, yet another Chicken/Broccoli dish. We love this. I use white potatoes instead of red, and fresh broccoli crowns. Oh YUM!

MY REVIEW

Easy to make, inexpenstive. Substitued low fat/low calorie items and still had terrific flavor. Used 3 cups brocolli.
