Excellent! I used portabello mushrooms, chicken breasts, and roasted red peppers to make this. This was so easy and so good. My chicken was tender as well. I served it with rice and green salad. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-Italy.

Reviewed for ZWT 7 visit to Italy. Great recipe Lazyme. Such and easy way to cook this recipe. I used 5 large skinless chicken breast pieces and chopped each into three chunks. and used brown rice flour to make this dish gluten-free ...otherwise made the recipe as stated. Served with creamy mashed potatoes for a delicious dinner. The chicken stayed tender. Photo also being posted.

WOW! Great recipe. Lots of flavor and very easy. I used thighs and wings, and I did leave the skin on the thighs, which worked great. They actually got pretty crisp. I also left out the red pepper (I forgot to buy one!) Served with Italian herbed rice and steamed broccoli. Made for ZWT 7.
