Grandma's Favorite Chicken

Melissa

"My Grandma used to make this chicken and it was my mom's favorite. It is very easy, quick, flexible, and delicious. You may add as many different veggies and any amount you want. The broth made from this is great to dip bread and butter; my brother loves to have it as soup. Yum!!!"

Just ok. Not much flavor. I added chicken broth instead of water. Chicken tasted like it was just boiled in the broth. Needed more spices or something. Probably wont make again.

This dish is wonderful! I took the advice of the others and used TONS of veggies, broccoli, baby carrots, red onions, red, yellow & green peppers. The next time I think I will not use broccoli. ...
