Dixie Chicken

Yes I have been travelling with work and busy again.... apologies as normal but all is back to normal in the House of Murray for a few weeks at least.  Junior football is nearly finished for the year also so we will have some more free time on the weekends shortly.

This dish is perfect for a mid week wonder as it was very easy to make and for a recipe with very few ingredients the flavour was amazing.  The sauce, even though made from soup, was creamy and enveloped the flavours of the vegetables and the thyme while the chicken remained tender and juicy.
