This is a really good tasting recipe. I tweeked it a little and used chicken broth instead of water and added a handful of frozen potato gnocchi to the bottom of the casserole dish. Excellent results. The starch from the potato resulted in a creamy gravy. Thanks for posting.This is a definate keeper.

This is to die for. We devoured this tasty comfort food. I made it using 4 chicken thighs and followed the recipe. This is a great dish to make for company served it with a side salad and stuffed zucchini. I will be making this again and soon, Thank you Sueie.

O.K......First of all, I was thrilled to see that my production looked exactly like the picture! How cool is that? Then what I suspected might be the case, was in fact the way it was....i.e. way too salty! But that was the onion soup. So.....i think the next time I make it (and I will make it again) I would cut back to 1/2 a pck. I also added twice the sour cream. I think some mushrooms might be nice added to it too. This time I served it with brown basmati rice and fresh broccoli. It is a keeper recipe....thanks Sueie.
