I found this recipe when looking for my favorite recipe for Christmas dinner. I will try this soon as it looks so simple and wonderful!!!! I plan on making it for Valentine's Day.

Sorry but I didn't find this that good. I used the dry mustard option because of the high sodium content of packaged onion soup mix. I also added some onion powder. The taste of the sauce was quite good but I found that the hen was done in 6 hrs and the breast at that point was already drying out.
