Unlike many other reviewers, my chicken and its sauce was not salty. And mine took a lot less cooking time. If you reduce 64 ounces (a half gallon!) of broth to a stew-like consistency of course its going to be salty, not to mention it's going to take forever to cook down! I used half the amount of chicken broth called for. I cooked it at fairly high heat rather than a simmer, and didn't return the chicken to the pan until it was almost the consistency I was after, tho' I did add a little cornstarch slurry to give the sauce some viscosity. As for seasoning, I wanted more than just the salt and pepper called for before dredging the chicken in the flour, so I gave it a good sprinkle of Montreal Chicken Seasoning as well, which worked well with the thyme (I used fresh). This was delicious. A simple mirepoix (or soffritto in Italian) was transformed into something sublime - and it took about half an hour from start to finish. I served this over rice alongside steamed zucchini.
