"This was great! I would not change a thing. An easy make ahead meal."

"I thought this had a good flavor. I had to cook the chicken 6hours for them to be done although may have been because they were rather large. I thickened the sauce using a little cornstarch and cold water and served with rice. Unfortunately, hubby did not like this so I will not make again since it is just the two of us."

"This recipe has such a great taste to it and chicken is very tender! I do like to thicken the gravy a bit first with cornstarch and water before serving."
