"MOTHER had two special ways of fixing chicken—browning serving-size pieces in fresh butter, or preparing this delicious sauce with the chicken added. Either way, our family loved Mother's chicken!"

"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."
