Made this for the first time today - EXCELLENT RECIPE! I used 1 pound of chicken and even at a 4 ounce serving of chicken it's only 4 points per serving on Weight Watchers. Very tasty! Unfortunately I did not have thyme in the house (I am going to get some soon so I can make the actual recipe) so I added Tastefully Simple Rustic Seasoning instead. Very good! The sauce is tasty and my husband thought this was fabulous! Thanks so much for posting this recipe!
This is the perfect recipe for a busy night -- and everything I needed was right in my cupboard. I followed the directions as written, except that when I added the onion to the pan, I sauteed it on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes so the pieces of onion would carmelize. I then proceeded with the rest of the recipe. It was on the table in a jiffy and everyone loved it. Instead of using the extra sauce for dipping, I ladled it over the mashed potatoes. Yum! Thanks for posting this great recipe.
