I really liked this recipe, it was easy and the sauce was extremely tasty although I did add a tsp of chicken base to it to add a little more chicken flavor. Make sure to follow the directions as far as the cooking time..I let mine cook past the 30 minutes and potatoes and carrots broke down a little and it would have looked more rustic with them whole. I used a whole chicken that I deskinned. yummy.
