    Good....but not great. I did add some seasonings...and rosemary as another reviewer does taste a bit bland. I will try to spice this one up a bit. Thanks for the post.  -  09 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My entire family loved this recipe. I have Celiac's disease, so I used a gluten-free flour mix instead of all-purpose flour. I also used bouillon cubes in boiling water instead of chicken broth (since store-bought chicken broth has gluten). It turned out delicious!  -  05 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
