So easy and tasty hubby and I like this as a simple weeknight meal. I always pound the chicken breasts thinner and season well with S&P garlic and onion powders and a little crushed rosemary and thyme before browning. I never have blandness probs as another reviewed stated and I think it's because I season well before cooking. I've been using this recipe for years cut from off a Swanson broth can! I like anothers suggestion of adding diced onion and apple...will try that next time! Read More

The chicken did not absorb as much of the herb flavors as I thought and was bland though it was juicy and tender. If I make this again I will slice some onion and maybe some apples to cook with the potatoes. Read More

This turned out really well! I did make a few adjustments. I started with the 2 xlg yams (as advised but I used 3 cups of green beans and 2 1/2 c. of stock. When the veggies were ready I took out the yams and a little more than half the stock/herbs and hand-blended them adding a little butter and maple syrup. I figured this way I could save the mashed yams and beans for tomorrow's side dish. Since I cook for two I like to stretch out recipes as much as I could. The remaining stock in the pan with the green beans and chicken made a nice au jus. My husband gave it a nine out of ten! Read More

Excellent! Like Lissa suggested I seasoned chicken first with s/p garlic and onion powder. I used Trader Joe's frozen French green beans. The sweet potato chunks took longer than 15 mins to soften so I added a second cup of chicken stock and let them cook awhile longer. Great leftovers today! Read More

This recipe is easy healthy and tasty. I knew just by looking at the recipe that it would be wise to season the chicken with salt and pepper before browning. I used EVOO instead of veg. oil and I used yams instead of sweet potatoes. I deglazed the pan with about 1/4 cup dry white wine before adding the broth. I just might make this again as a quick and healthy weeknight meal. Read More

We really enjoyed this. Used regular potatoes since my husband won't touch sweet potatoes. I put s&p on the chicken before browning but that was my only adjustment. I liked this recipe as it is but it's also a good base recipe to experiment with. I'll be using this often - a quick and tasty way to get a good dinner on the table during the week! Thanks for sharing! Read More

I really screwed up making this dish (used bouillon cube in hot water for lack of chicken stock no rosemary forgot the onions till the end) and it still turned out pretty tasty! I took another's advice and seasoned the chicken first with s&p and garlic powder and browned it in sunflower oil instead of vegetable oil. Can't say I'd crave it but I will certainly try it again (hopefully with ALL of the ingredients). A nice light meal. Read More

Delicious! The only thing I did differently was to sprinkle a bit of seasoning salt on the chicken before browning. I was afraid it might be too bland without it. It was perfect! Next time I think I'll try the footnote ideas by adding wine lemon juice and mustard. Sounds wonderful! Read More
