These were good and easy to make. I did make some changes. When I added the chicken broth, it was salty enjough for us, so I didn't add any of the salt. I also only added half the black pepper and didn't add the sugar. This was a nice side dish.

These had a great flavor! The only things I changed were: I was sceptical about the sugar so I didn't add that. I also added sauteed mushrooms.

Yum! We really enjoyed this recipe. I love the chicken broth flavor this gave. I added a few red potatoes that I needed to use up. Turned out great!! :) Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!!
