      Omitting the salt and adding celery salt in place of the celery really gives this sauce a great flavor. We were all totally loving the sauce! This sauce is different than lots of others and has loads of flavors just waiting to experiment on your taste buds. This is a repeater!

      I followed Linda's Busy Kitchen's notes and used dried onion and celery salt in this. The celery salt has loads of flavor and really did the sauce justice! We all loved this finger licking chicken and it has been added to our monthly meal rotation to enjoy again and again!

      Excellent, EXCELLENT, ExCeLlEnT is all I can say. Don't miss out on this one folks! Man Oh Man was this ever GOOD! You won't believe it, but I had fallen asleep yesterday afternoon around 5, and when I woke up at 12 midnight I was starving. I was on Zaar looking at recipes because I couldn't sleep, and came across this one. I just happened to have a whole cutup chicken in the fridge waiting to cook, so decided to try it. Am I glad I did! I was out of onions, so I used about 1/2 c. dried onion and just put them in with a little extra water and let them simmer for awhile, and I didn't have celery, so I used 1 tsp. celery salt in place of the chopped celery and salt. I was in heaven eating this at 1:30 am LOL... I just posted pics. Two before and 2 after cooking) You'll be lickin your chops too when you see em :) Thanks so much for sharing this family favorite with us Seasoned Cook. Keep on with your delicious recipes. YUMMO!!! Linda
