My husband who was a cook at the time, use to make this dish for us back when we were Newlyweds (29 years ago). Times were tough for us back then so it was all we could afford to make! haha
Just recently, I have been craving this dish & asked him to make it for me but, he cant remember how to make it * he's now an HVAC mechanic who makes lots of money so that's probably why he has a memory loss! ;-) I saw this recipe and it sounded as close to the one he used to make so thought that I'd give it a try. Well, I started off making this following the author's directions to the letter & I too found that the flour measurement given was way too much!!!!! Thank goodness I poached my chicken breast & reserved all the liquid * was saving it for my dogs* because, I had to add a good 6 big soup ladle scoops of the broth to finally get this to a manageable consistency *not to mention, I also threw in a half wine glass full of my CA Blush Chablis*!! ;- Well, that saved the consistency but, it still was lacking flavor so...thew in some seasoned salt..more pepper...a half tsp. of jarred minced garlic, paprika & a dash of dried parsley flakes. Hopefully, I now have what taste like I remember? I will post a photo of the finished product at a later date ~Bon Appetite~
