  1. Do you leave the chicken in the pot when adding the water to deglaze or remove the chicken beforehand?

    1. You can leave it in if you want, but it might be easier to remove the chicken for a minute while you deglaze.

  2. Great recipe I think next time I will use more herbs on the chicken and use chicken broth instead as water to give it more flavor.

  3. I was excited to try this recipe but the instructions are missing some details. No where does it say when, where and how to use the herbs. Please confirm the use of these ingredients and update the post please. Thank You
