Delicious chicken! I was short on milk so I used evaporated milk just like another poster suggested. Thanks for sharing!

We so thoroughly enjoyed this chicken. The "goo" is sweetie/tangy and I could have just poured into a bowl and ate it like soup! Definitely will be made again. I did forget to remove the skin but drained off the fat before adding the broth mixture. Thanks Derf for another yummy recipe!

I made this using fat free carnation instead of milk and it turned out perfectly. The sauce is divine!!! Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.
