Potter: Katie made this dish tonight. It turned out amazing. Katie had to bribe me to leave her enough for lunch. The sauce was delicious and the chicken well cooked. I don't really know what else to say, it tasted great but I didn't make it so I can't give my usual comments.

Katie: This dish turned out great. I suggest making sure that if you have any thick pieces of chicken to slice them in half lengthwise (top-bottom) to make thinner pieces. I had enough time for everything by following the instructions as written. Make sure you are constantly stirring in step 7 instruction to keep the onions from sticking to the skillet. I enjoyed making this dish tonight. The end result was very appealing to the eye as well. :)
