Awesome chicken! Love all the wonderful flavours. Did add a wee bit of lemon pepper to the sauce. Used bone-in with skin-on thighs (as that is what I had and no time to prep it) and fresh rosemary from my indoor garden. Thanks Pia for sharing! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

We had mixed reviews on this dish...hubby loved it and I thought it lacked flavor...my gravy came out on the light side even thou I used the beef broth...this was easy to prepare and the chicken came out nice and moist...served it with leftover Thanksgiving side dishes...made for "Bill Board" tag game...

We loved this dish both while it was cooking and after it was served. The aroma was intoxicating and the flavor was tasty. I served it with boiled baby new potatoes which I smashed and served the gravy on top. Made for Billboard tag.
