A superb and easy-to-follow recipe. The directions for reducing the chicken drippings to a sauce were clear, and the sauce that I made was better than anything I've ever made. Part of the reason for the success, I think, was the very thick-bottomed frying pan that I used, a new pan for me. But the recipe was the biggest ingredient. It was a superb dish!

Turned out very well. My 12 year old liked it, and my 4 year old, though apprehensive, ate it without complaint. I removed the crust and fed it to our 11 month old too.

Did not go so well with the kids but my wife and I really liked it.
