Made this for dinner tonight and paired it with a green salad. Another Out Of This World dinner recipe by Gina! It was DELICIOUS!!!! The juggling with the various prep dishes is a small part for a great meal. THANKS AGAIN, Gina!
Great recipe, I have made this a few times now.. Althiugh the first time made as the same recipe here!But I don’t see the need to go through all the steps,! Made it all in one pan but saute 4 big cut up chicken brest, with more garlic, and seasonings. Instead of using reg milk, I used 1% Butter Milk it taste richer., and made a white sause with out all The calories. Used very little flour.. using the buttermilk made all the difference in this recipe.I also added in more fresh garlic, mushrooms sliced, allot of asparagus tips, and broccoli . Used more graded organic cheese , and fresh parm cheese..Do not use cooking sprays,, used organic pastured butter to grease a very Large pyrex and also add to recipe, with cheese inside, & on top… then put in oven .Wonderful dinner with salad.
I’ve made this several times and I like it. I only give it 4 stars instead of 5 because there are so many steps and it creates a lot of dishes. I find that 1 tbsp of butter is not realistic for the step where you make a roux – I can’t get 3 tbsp of flour to absorb into 1 tbsp of butter so I end up using 1.5 tbsp of butter and adding a tiny bit of the chicken broth early so the whole thing doesn’t start to burn. The flavor is good and my husband loves it. I’ve made this dish multiple times and we love it! I just double everything for leftovers for lunches all week🙂.
