    Good start but modified to 2/3 broth and 1/3 heavy cream and substituted chopped fresh red pepper for the pimento. Also added white wine and result was 5 stars.

    This is quick and easy and tastes like the dish you used to get at the fancy department store restaurant with Grandma. Love it!

    Yummie! I will be making this one often! I used a rotisserie chicken to save time. Really easy and quick to put together, too. Grandkids even liked it!

    Great basic recipe. I added peas instead of green pepper, garlic, a splash of sherry and a dollop of sour cream.

    Great recipe, clear and simple. The only thing I added was a touch of tarragon. The family raved, so I will make it again. I like simple recipes so I can add my personal touch once I am used to making it.
