DH said he liked the recipe and wants me to prepare it again. I on the otherhand found it lacking somthing, not sure what. As another reviewer said, it has a "mild yet rich flavor". I'll try again with a few herbs/spices.

Wow! This was just wonderful - cannot imagine how I missed making it this long. Made it just as posted except for seasoning the chicken with some salt, pepper, celery salt and parsley. This is already a favorite here!

Delicious and very easy to prepare. I followed the recipe exactly except I doubled the sauce ingredients as we like lots of sauce. I thickened the sauce with a bit of cornstarch mixed with water. Had a bit left over for lunch the next day and it was even better.
