  • The chicken will release some juices while cooking so you will end up with more gravy than what it looks like before cooking. Check the before and after photos to see if this is enough gravy for you.
  • Add some onions – Slice up 1/2 a yellow onion for more flavor.
  • Add some herbs – Herb it up with some rosemary, sage, oregano, or thyme.
  • Add some veggies – Cook it with some sliced white or baby bella mushrooms or add in some green peas towards the end of cooking time.
