I used 4 chicken Thighs.This was a great recipe to start with but I felt something was missing I coated the chicken in parmesan breadcrumbs instead of the flour added a little cream to the sauce and mixed the worcestershire into the sauce along with a cpl splashes of tabasco and 1/2 cup chicken stock. The result was really good. Thank You
