    It lacked flavor considering all the spices added in. Not just my opinion, my husband said the same thing.

    Gravy was delicious. Chicken loses that “crispy” that southern chicken is. But all together, yummy!! Leftovers for the win!!

    Really lovely flavour, subbed a couple ingredients and still turned out great. My only complaint is that it stuck to my nonstick pan and congealed quite a bit, still tasted great but not the texture I was hoping for.

    Everyone loved it! I substituted garlic and onion powder for real thing. Used chicken breast and was ready after about 15 minutes simmering.

    It was really good I would recommend adding more salt but that is about it my kid even liked it paired with mashed potatoes. Picture doesn’t do the food justice

    Easy to prepare and flavorful. Used boneless skinless thighs (very moist) and white rice (great with gravy). Gravy was thick, I liked it, but my Hawaiian raised wife didn’t. Too thick for her taste. I will add a bit more salt next time, otherwise spot on.
