Horrible instructions! Must be missing a few steps. We had to take the chicken back out and pan fry them. The “mushroom sauce” turned out to be too watery - had to boil it done after cooking and then added brown gravy mix. Will not be making this again. And yes I followed the very limited directions.

Bake for 2hrs? That seems a little long for pieces of chicken. A whole chicken can be cooked in that amount of time. Should it read 1 hr? Unless you're using huge pieces?

"Fifteen minutes before it is done, add thyme and cream and finish baking uncovered." not in print version. I guess nobody corrects anything anymore.
