Yummo for dinner... a real winner!!! This was a great way to use up some of the B/S chicken breasts that hubby brought home a month ago (they've been wallowing in the freezer forever). I wasn't sure what "natural" yogurt was, so I used plain old, regular yogurt (not Greek, or anything out of the norm). It was truly delightful! P.S. My alterations were that I cut down the sugar to 2 TBLs. I used "Russet" potatoes for the mash (and they were fine), and I used "scallions", rather than "spring onions" (I know that there is a slight difference, but I couldn't find them in the grocery store). Thanks for posting. (Made for PRMR)<br/>P.S. It may be helpful for others to know the difference between "tomato puree", "tomato concentrate" and "tomato sauce"... Thanks again, hun! :)

Very quick and easy with a good balsamic flavor. Made with 3 b/s chicken breasts so there W's extra sauce, and used Yukon gold potatoes. Made for 123Hits.

This is definitely a great new way for us to enjoy chicken breasts, something we have several times a week at least! The only thing I changed was to leave the potatoes unpeeled, but chopped them up quite small! Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Stars tag]
