Introduction

I created this dish for dinner one day when I was pressed for time with ingredients I had on hand and it was an instant hit! A low-carb delight as is, but you can serve over wide, whole-wheat noodles or brown rice if you are not watching carbs.

    This was super - I added some extra ingredients: parsley, garlic powder, dijon mustard and sage to the broth. Then I sauteed muchrooms and onions added them. When the chicken was nearly done, I added some broccoli as well. My five-year old and my picky husband inhaled it! Thanks! - 12/17/08

    Sounds like some great additions! I didn't have onions or garlic the day I made this, so next time I will use them!

    My husband and I loved this recipe. I went ahead and added the suggestions of garlic powder, onions, sage, parsley,mushrooms and I used yellow mustard. Did not have the Dijon Mustard. It was very very good. Served it over some rice. Will make again!!! - 1/22/09

    Made this for supper tonight served over noodles. My husband, son and I absolutely loved it. Compared it to stroganoff without all the fat. Will definitely have it again - maybe next time substituting venison for the chicken. - 1/30/09

    I saute' the chicken first in a little bit of olive oil, diced garlic and onions. It helps to make the chicken more flavorable. - 5/13/09

    This wasn't my favorite meal, but it wasn't bad and it was really easy to make. Next time though I'd do it with extra lean ground beef. The chicken just didn't add enough flavor. - 1/19/09
