    Made recipe as directed except did not serve with the thickened liquid due to a hungry boyfriend who wanted to dig in. The chicken was delicious, it literally fell right off the bone. Next time I will do half an onion and add more of the other veggies as we are not huge onion fans and felt that there was quite a lot.
