I was in a hurry for something quick and easy and found this recipe. I didn't take the time to cook the chicken thoroughly during the browning phase just browned quickly on each side then added the chicken broth and simmered about 20-30 minutes. I found it to be quite tasty! The broth thickens and tastes very good over the chicken. I will make this one again thanks Rachel!

This is a nice simple recipe for chicken. It takes very little time and was quick and easy to make. However the directions were not very clear so I only gave it three stars. I sprinkled the thyme over the chicken with a little pepper before I started. I then browned the chicken in the butter. I deglazed the pan with low sodium chicken broth and simmered for 30 minutes. The 30 minutes was really too long and my chicken was a little over done. I removed the chicken and boiled the sauce down. This took about five minutes and made a lot of sauce. Don't take the easy way out with a thickener like corn starch though when boiled down the sauce gives you a slightly salty mixture with a strong thyme flavor. Because the mix is already a little salty I really recommend lost sodium broth. My 13 month old loved it and I will make again for sure. Next time I may try adding a little lemon juice to the mixture while simmering.

I really liked this recipe just make sure to sear the chicken before you let it simmer in the sauce. This will keep the juices in it while it simmers and leave a more juicy chicken!

This was not horrible but it was pretty boring. The sauce did not ever thicken for me and it basically just tasted like chicken broth.

I gave this 5 stars because it was a great starter. I added onion when I browned the chicken. I also added some wine to the broth and a pinch of rosemary with the thyme. I simmered it with the lid on and therefore it didnt thicken. I used flour and water to make a gravy for the egg noodles I served it with. Next time I make it I will add mushrooms when I brown the chicken. Great recipe easy to suit to taste.

I added a red onion a splash of sherry ad a handful of frozen peas- and this was a very nice dish. I give it three stars- but it would be five with the changes that i've made.

This chicken was very good especially the sauce. I seasoned the chicken with pepper and rosemary in addition to the thyme. I also added about a tablespoon of sherry when I added the broth. The sauce does take a while to reduce so don't worry about cooking the chicken the whole way through during the initial browning step.

I took navy_mommy's idea and added some lemon juice to the chicken as well as serving it with a slice for appearance. The lemon went very nicely with the thyme and with the sprinkling of rosemary I added. I served this with a side of rice and my boyfriend loved it.:) I'll probably make this again.

This was not a bad dish. Make sure to use low or no sodium broth beacause of the reduction. I did find the dish to be a bit on the bland side. I think maybe next time I might add some cream and even some dijon mustad to the sauce for a bit more flavour.
