This was the perfect quick and easy dinner for tonight. I used 2 small chicken breasts and broth instead of water.

I added garlic while it was sauteeing as well, and I used chicken broth (using "chicken broth base" paste) instead of water. I was a little worried there wouldn't be enough fluid but it was the perfect amount and created a rich and savory gravy that we poured over the potatoes. For me this was comfort food, reminding me of something my grandmother used to make, my daughter however said "It tastes like pot roast but with chicken". All in all, this was fabulous. Thank you!

This is a great and quick recipe! The family loved it and I am adding it to my recipe files! I added a small amount of garlic to the chicken while it browned. We will definately have this again and soon! For a side dish we add Orzo with butter.
