"Super easy and oh so delish! If you are pressed for time but need a great side dish try semi boiling your potatoes while making your sauce. Cuts the time down significantly. Also, you can boil your potatoes in chicken broth for extra flavor!"

"Wonderful. This is the same recipe that my mom and I would make. But we would add pan fried pork chops to it. I would also make a toss green salad to go along with it. YUMMY."
