  1. This was a great recipe, and my family and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
    Next time I will add a bit more flour, or maybe some arrowroot at the end to make it slightly thicker. I will also add more carrots and mushrooms as they were sooooo yummy. I used a whole chicken cut up in parts, next time i think i will just go for the Maryland cut…
    I served it with mashed potatoes, and it was lovely!
