DeeLish! Easy and tasty. I used a mix of thighs and breasts. A tsp of chicken bullion in the water. I served over rice. Even looked great. Cooking times right on. Not much more I can say but thanks for sharing that one!

My family really liked this recipe. I used a package of Knorr Spring Vegetable Soup Mix because that was what I had on hand. I also forgot to add the dill and I think that would have been very good with this recipe. Thanks for a great and easy recipe

I loved this chicken recipe! I used legs because I had them so I browned them in 1 tsp. lite margarine and 1 tsp. evoo. I used Knorr's Leek soup mix, added 1 Tbl. crushed red pepper flakes and a spash of white wine, then let it simmer for about 25 minutes covered, forgot the lemon and used lite sour cream. Served with whole wheat penne and spinich. This was delicious! It to me did not taste like my beloved long lost Chicken Tonight but it was VERY good and my family loved it, I will make this many times.
