We all really enjoyed this. I made it with turkey meat, and replaced half the water with wine. I had to add extra cream, as I found the original amount of liquid left it really thick at the end of cooking time (but I used an American envelope of Lipton's Onion soup I was sent).
This is a great recipe that my 3 children and hubby will eat! I use chook breasts on the bone for added goodness (marrow) and take the meat off for my little ones. The flavour is delicious! Serve with pasta or rice to soak all the extra sauce up!! My friends love it too and I always get asked for the recipe!
