“I got this recipe from my sister and my family really likes it a lot. It makes the house smell so good!” The amount of garlic might seem high, but it's just right. You get every bit of the flavor without it overpowering the other ingredients. —Terri Christensen of Montague, Michigan

"I haven't tried this recipe yet but am planning on fixing it today. I really sounds like a delicious and easy recipe. I think I will add a few less potatoes and add a couple of carrots to it just to give it a little more color since my family likes carrots. It sounds like a winner. I will rate it after I try it."

"I used boneless chicken breasts and doubled the liquid. Everyone in the family enjoyed it and I liked how easy it was!"

"I would make this again, but definitely did not make enough gravy for the amount of food that was cooked."
