    This turned out well. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and they were good. Will make again because it was so easy. I think I will reduce the amount of herbs just a bit because they were a little strong. Thanks for the post.  -  05 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My family LOVED this. The all of the seasonings made a very tasty gravy, and the chicken was so tender. I used an oven roaster and did it in the oven. I skipped mixing the seasonings in a bowl...and just sprinkled them right onto the roaster to my hearts content, and then poured in the broth & wine (really not having a problem with overwhelming greenness). I also added potatoes & carrots in with the shrooms and onion. Good eats lilsis, and thanks!  -  05 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe is really nothing special. The chicken is pretty bland. What is remarkable is how unappetizing the chicken looks once cooked. The thyme and other spices leave the chicken with a green coating which, as my friend remarked, looks like something Tim Burton would create. I will not be making the Tim Burton Chicken again.  -  26 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
