      Delicious one-dish meal. I used a combination of chicken thighs and drumsticks and loved it! I couldn't find baby turnips, so just used 2 regular turnips, peeled and sliced. The recipe was easy to put together. We loved the gravy. The only thing that was tricky was doing the ziplock bag trick. It took two of us and we made a little bit of a mess. It is such a cool idea though! Yummy meal. Thank you. Made for ZWT8 Great Britain

      This is a terrific chicken dish, and so easy! I left out the onions as I don't care for them, and used boneless skinless chicken breasts. The gravy for this was so tasty, loved it with the chicken and veggies. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
