"Mmm, gravy! Very nice, but could hardly taste the garlic. Perhaps mincing will help. But still, the chicken was very moist, and the cold roux made a very quick pan gravy. I'll make it again using fresh herbs."

"This is so-o-o delicious! The chicken was moist and tender and the gravy was so flavorful. We ladled it over our mashed potatoes and chicken. YUM! I did add 1/2 cup 2% milk to the gravy just to make it creamy. It didn't change the wonderful taste."
