Reviews for Farmhouse Chicken and Biscuits
"I loved this recipe, only thing I did different was substituting half the water for chicken broth, I added the water & broth in a large measuring cup and mixed in about 1T poultry seasoning, half a packet of Sazón by Goya (its in the Hispanic food section of most grocers and is wonderful with chicken recipes!), and a dash of sage. Mixed well and poured over the chicken and veggies in the dutch oven."
"Delicious!!! We also served over rice and I used broth to cook the chicken."
"I have made this several times - excellent recipe."
