      Fantastic recipe!! I can't believe how simple this was to prepare and the taste was over the top delicious. My son finished his first serving and was into his 2nd before I was halfway finished (he is 15 though!!). The whole family loved this recipe. I think next time I'll brown the chicken a bit more in the pan before adding the broth but love that the chicks cook by poaching than doing it completely as pan fried. I too skipped on the sugar - just don't see the need. Have I told you how much we loved it yet? 10*** definitely! Thanks Nif - made for Went to the Market Tag and now going into my much loved recipes cookbook.

      Well now I ask you, how could you not fall in love with this recipe? It's simple delicious, perfect, comfort food. I omitted the sugar, and to be honest I doubt that I would have felt it was a 5 star recipe with sweetening of any kind added. It was rich, creamy tasting, and very satisfying without it. You sure can't complain about the time either. This one is a keeper for sure!
