I made this chicken a couple of nights ago and it was delicious. I doubled the recipe as I had 7 guests but all the cooking on the stove top got a bit tedious and took forever. I think I might try baking them instead. I think I also may try shallots. I guess I will update this reveiw when I do to see if it was any good but it really went over very well. The fresh sage as well as using freshly ground salt and pepper really make this recipe very flavorful. This time replaced the chicken broth with plain water and some salt and poured the juice that came out of the chicken after it came out of the pan back in. Where I live you can't actually buy cans of broth only powder which tend to be quite high in sodium. Excellent recipe. I served it with carrot, sweet potato and sweet onion in salt, pepper, garlic and olive oil and potato pudding.
