      This was very good and a "lighter" version of an old southern favorite. I made this as written except I increased the seasonings a bit. Thanks for the recipe!!

      Oh my, we loved this! So delicious and savory and fills you right up! The only thing I did different was used all chicken breast. The chicken and spices simmering filled the house with the most delicious aroma and I could hardly wait to eat! Served with some home made biscuits and what a great meal it was! Thanks for sharing this recipe we'll definitely be having again! :)Made for PAC Fall 08
