    This makes a very delicious gravy. The chicken tastes great too. Easy meal.

    I made my own Herbs de Provence as I had none on hand. I too was worried about all that wine and no broth or water but decided to go along with the recipe. I also threw in some mushrooms I needed to use up. I want to tell you those were the best tasting potatoes and carrots ever. The chicken was great too although I was not happy about the soggy breading on the chicken by adding it back to the pan with the rest of the ingredients for an hour. Next time I will fry the chicken separate and add it when everything is about to be served. I will throw the left over flour mixture into the vegetables as they cook so I get that same wonderful taste I got tonight. Made for Chef Alphabet Soup.
    OMG, this is so good!! I reduced the servings and made with 4 b/s chicken thighs but otherwise followed the recipe. This has a great flavor; I am not a wine drinker so was not sure I would like this since the sauce was just wine, but there was not a strong wine flavor. Will be making this again!
