    You didn’t say when or where to add in the onions! I figured it was on top of the chicken before the soup mixture. Came out awesome! Thank you

  2. 5 stars
    This turned out AMAZING! I used 2 leg quarters and seasoned them with poultry seasoning and white pepper. I also added in sliced carrots with the bell peppers as well. At the end, I adjusted the taste with more garlic powder, onion powder, italian seasoning, salt, pepper and served it with bow tie pasta.

    This recipe is definitely a keeper, thank you!

    1. You’re very welcome Kaechelle! So glad to hear you the chicken so much! Love the additions.
