I found this recipe years ago in a "Farm Journal's Best Ever Book". Every time I serve it, I get compliments! Quick, simple and most ingredients are on hand.

So very good and easy to prepare. My husband asked me why I had never made this before so that is a good sign. I used boneless chicken breasts and chicken stock instead of water and boullion as that is what I prefer. I also found the sauce to be slightly thinner than I would have liked but once it did thicken upon standing and I was a happy camper!

I'm sorry to leave a less than perfect review but this was very oily. I guess if you're using skinless chicken breast it would be fine but if you're following the recipe exactly I would highly recommend reducing the oil by half. Also I feel the flour made the chicken nice and crispy but after adding the bouillon/water mix it just became soggy and unappetizing. I would just add the flour at the end.

Very good! I cooked my boneless skinless chicken breasts whole, then I cut it up into bite sized pieces and served it with the sauce over linguine. Great! My sauce was a little thin, but the pasta took care of that. Thanks for sharing!
