I have most of these ingredients. So excited to try this recipe! #yum
I followed this recipe exactly as written, and it came out looking nothing like the photo, and the chicken was more boiled than fried/sautéed. I used fresh organic chicken patted dry, and it all looked like a watery mess at the end. Pretty disappointed.

Thank you for sharing your experience with this recipe, LindsayM . So sorry to hear it didn't turn out for you. Not sure why it was watery, as there is very little chicken broth (or water) in the recipe. We will run this recipe through our test kitchen again. We appreciate your feedback! Donna John

Not sure what happened, LindsayM . I've made this recipe several times and did not experience that. We will run it through our test kitchens again, though. Thank you for letting us know about your experience.

I made this 3 weeks ago, came out PERFECT! My neighbors loved it too. I'm going to make it again tonight. This time I'll probably add celery ☺️

So glad you enjoyed it! Love the idea of adding celery.
