This is an awesome recipe!! It's super simple to make and tastes great. I did a few things differently: I minused the salt (due to diet restrictions) and added 1/4 tsp. red pepper also my sauce wasn't thickening so I added 1 T. cornstarch and it thickened right up. Thanks for posting...I can't wait to make this again!!

Excllent recipe! My husband really liked it. I used all broccoli for the 2 cups of vegetables. I also added an extra clove garlic & about 2 tbls. olive oil in pan with the chicken. I added 1/3 of a yellow bell pepper, diced; 1/3 of an orange bell pepper, diced & about 3/4 cup sliced mushrooms to the chicken about 1/2 through cooking. I used all of the 10 oz. can chicken broth I had, so I used an extra 2 oz. milk & 2 extra tbls. flour, which gave me more sauce for the extra vegetables I added. I will definatly make this one again!! Thanks Ceezie!

This was pretty good as I followed the recipe exact. Next time I'll add more seasonings as it was quite bland. Used only broccoli for my vegetable and that could have been the problem too. But, I'm thinking maybe more garlic and more s&p which is entirely my fault as you have stated to taste. Thanks for a quick put-together Ceezie!
