    The sauce is amazing. I added mushrooms and green peas, it turned out very good. I served over bowtie noodles, cut the chicken and served on top! Can’t wait to make again. Thanks Stephanie!

    I just tried this and it was soooo delicious I actually ate both servings. I had it with some basmati rice, but I made extra sauce and soaked it up with some bread – delicious! I will definitely make this again. Thanks Stephanie.

    Hello, can you copy the recipe for craker barrel’s slow baked chicken recipe with stuffing that they usually served during a monday lunch special?
    I also like the recipe for their roast beef recipe or pot roast maybe. And the last one is the recipe for their Fried chicken that they served during Sundays.
