This went very well with a roasted chicken. I followed instructions as listed except for using whatever drippings I had from the roasted chicken I made to go with this, and mixed with enough water to make 3 cups liquids and omitted the bouillon cubes and it turned out droolicious!!!!!!!!!
I will make this again for sure. Thanks for sharing your lovely recipe.

This was good, but I thought it a little bland for myself and my better half. We are spice fiends, so I added a little minced garlic and a little italian seasonings. Also upped the wine a little (and cut on the water a touch). All in all I will make this again.
