    CountryLady's Note:

    Found on the net & posted in response to a request. Substitute rice for potatoes, if desired. After making this for the first time myself, I made some minor changes in the steps to improve the recipe.

      Excellent! I made it for the first time last week when we had some friends over and everybody wanted a second serving! I would not change anything. Preparing it a few hours earlier is a great flavour improvement.

      Yummy! I used chicken leg quarters and it turned out perfectly. I also had to use regular cut green beans since thats all I had on hand. FYI...I added about a 1/2 a cup of water, as it said 'add additional amounts of water if needed.'

      Good home cooking. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs, so they cooked in less time and I had to add in the potatoes earlier. Don't use thighs - they made the sauce way to fatty - next time I'll use breasts. Very tasty.
