    HEP MEP's Note:

    This came out of our Sunday paper's Food section. It seemed ideal to me since I could adjust it to be a low sodium entree. I doubled the recipe for the 3 of us and made 4 halves.(extra sauce would be good next time too-it went fast!)

      Super delicious!! It was fast and easy. I would recommend having it with a creamy rice dish or egg noddles, like Cookgirl suggested. Also, I only used about 1/2 the amount of flour, and it still turned out great!

      As *Z* said, this is indeed very yummy! Clear directions, too. I skipped Step #8 because I didn't find it necessary. Tri-colored sage from our herb garden was used and I served the chicken with pan grilled local asparagus, couscous (although next time I think I'd prefer the chicken served with egg noodles) and French bread. God Bless you, Mep and may your memory live forever. Reviewed for Mep's Cookathon. cg

      Yummy!! I had to use chicken gravy instead of chicken broth due to my bad planning, but it was still great!! The sage flavor will probably stand out more with the broth instead of the heavy gravy. It cooked up quick and easy.
