    this was a good dish, quick and easy. My husband especially liked it, which is rare to hear from him. Will definitely make again. I used frozen broccoli and let it thaw, and it worked well.

    This was a very easy supper. It looked nice too. This would be perfect with rice. I made as directed except only used 3 chicken breasts just because it's only my husband and I and I wasn't feeling very hungry. The sauce was very nice. Thanks so much for posting!

    Let's hear it for good old, comfort food !! DH gets a tad testy at some of my efforts with Zaar recipes -- he LOVED this !! I had a BIG supply of fresh broccoli from a stand, and used the remainder in this, AFTER I cut the florets and steamed in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes before adding to the chicken and sauce. Served with Uncle Ben's Chicken flavored rice -- just as listed -- no spicy additions. A very tasty and filling meal. Tanks, Sydney Mike, for posting !! Now in the Keeper-file.

    This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written but my family thought it needed more seasoning. I added garlic, onion and salt. Everyone enjoyed it and I love how quick it was to make!
