Could you tell me how much the weight of the chicken should be, and if you used boneless for this recipe?Reply
This recipe turned out well, but it was very hard. I thought I would never get done, and then there were many dishes dirtied and a greasy, dirty kitchen to clean up. Also, be careful how much grease and oil you allow into the dish. I poured off the grease from my chicken, and it was still a little bit too greasy. Because the sauce dried out during cooking, I had to add more liquid, and I was using chicken broth which contributed to the grease. I didn't have a cracker topping (didn't want cheese)Reply
What does “ Prepare large and dip baking dish” mean?Reply
I used a square 8×8 baking dish.Reply
I have a specific taste in mind and I don't think this dish is it. In a memory of mine, ann elder made a dsh that had chicken, broccoli and mushrooms and it tasted different than the base for this one. Her's had more of a onion soup mix taste with it, although I don't think that's what was in it.. Right now this recipe is in the oven (I used a square 8×8 Pyrex casserole dish) and although I don't think it's what I'm looking for, I think it will be tasty just the same. I will continue my searReply
Nowhere close to the taste I wanted. I find it to be too floury, making it thick almost like Alfredo, but thicker. The tastes all blend nicely but the broccoli definitely need a bit of softening because it's still on the crunchier side. All in all a nice dish.Reply
READ READ READ this recipe throughly. She has steps in the body of the instructions and not in the list of ingredients. Also the measures were American , cups, tsps. etc and then with the cheese is goes to metric. GRRRR!!!. Very time consuming and really messy with all the pots and bowls which makes it not worth it.Reply
I found it to be a really good recipe to use as a guide. I ended up using 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs, more garlic (I measure with my soul), substituted all cheddar for the mozzarella and I ended up with almost 4 cups of chicken stock. I seasoned as I went and actually forgot the nutmeg, but it as really good. Bottom line, make it your own and go with your instincts.Reply
