    I made this last night and my whole family loved it (even my 3 picky children). I made it exactly as the recipe was written.

    This is a very easy and comforting meal. I did add salt and pepper, and a diced green pepper to the dish when I prepared it. I served it with wide yolkless noodles and green beans. My family raved about the dish. I am sure it will be fixed often here. Thanks so much for posting.

    Okay...I thought about not even posting a review...but I didn't feel that was right. I'm sorry but hubby and I didn't care much for this...something just wasn't right. The flavor was not what we had thought it might be. Others have enjoyed it so it must just be OUR tastebuds.

    I've gone back and forth between 5 stars and 4 on this 'bout 4-1/2? ;o) I served it with Best Buttered Egg Noodles #11107. It was very simple to make and went over well with the family; it's very much a homestyle comfort-food dish. It needed a little something extra, though...maybe garlic, a dash of rosemary, or a splash of sherry (or all three)? And I didn't have the best of luck thickening the gravy as described in the recipe; will go back to my old method when I make this again. That being said, I definitely *will* be making it again ~ it's quick, easy, economical, and popular here. I'll just add a bit more zing and use a different gravy method. Thanks for posting!

    This was an excellent way to prepare a chicken. The meat was very tender and flavorful and the gravy was delicious. The carrots were perfectly done. It was a very good meal! I did thicken the gravy. My family devoured this dish!
