Just had this tonight. I was expecting more since it got such great reviews. It was an okay dinner. I don't know if I'll be making this again with all the time it took with the list of ingredients, browning the chicken, and then of course waiting for it all to cook. I used 4 thighs and 2 breasts cause that's what I had. I at first added an extra 1/2 cup of broth cause that's what most reviews said to do. Then I saw it didn't cover the pile so I added about another half cup. And I omitted the potatoes cause my kids won't eat them. Well it smelled nice while cooking but there was FAR too much liquid after. I added cornstarch to thicken it, which helped. But now I am left with way too much sauce, and I don't want to throw it out. I think that leaving the recipe as is and not adding extra liquid would've been better. But then again, the potatoes would've helped with absorbing some of it (I think) and that could've been my problem. Also, it doesn't say if the can of beans should be drained or not. So I didn't drain mine, and that could also be the problem. All in all, great if you're looking for something to have ready for when you come home that's just "good enough". But taste-wise, nothing special. I added quite a bit of salt to liven it up. I served it over brown rice.
