Made this tonight with some worry about lack of flavor. I was right!! It is missing something because using oregeno does not make the cut in reaching that "irrestible" mark. I did like the technique as it made the chicken incredibly juicy. I will have to play around with more herbs and seasonings to get this dish a 5-star rating.

I was surprised at how good this was......it's simple, but I just loved the veggies, and especially the little red potatoes, in the sauce. I did cut down the soy sauce to just a fourth of a cup, but it seems like the brand I use from the health food store is pretty strong. I love dishes like this that are all in one skillet....this is one I'll be making frequently!

Really easy all in one recipe. I did use all chicken breast because we are boneless white meat people. But this had really good flavor.

I've made this so many times. I do remove the skin before I add it to the seasoned flour. Very good and comforting dish

This reminds me so much of a dish that my grandmother used to make. Unfortunately, I never got her recipe, but I like to think that this is very close. I could make this once a week and my family would never tire of it.
