Yum! The only thing I didn't like was the small portion. Will make more chicken next time.

Loved this! After reading comments added garlic and cornstarch. It was restaurant worthy.

I didn't make the garlic bread, but instead paired with noodles. It felt like a gourmet Italian dish! So much flavor! My husband wants me t chop some mushrooms and add a little wilted spinach next time. We also added a little Parmesan cheese on top.

Next time I'll include a side of broccoli or other veggies. Very tasty and smelled absolutely amazing while cooking.

Made the original but converted it to gluten free with gf garlic bread. Next time I would try to thicken up the sauce to make it more of a gravy. Flavor was great.
