This is much as I remember it - delicious! I've been looking for this recipe since enjoying the dish at the restaurant. I just posted Buca's marinara sauce recipe, which I didn't use this time, though it may make it even better. The capers and sherry (I used madeira) add that little extra something, and the potatoes just take the whole dish over the top. I also like to add about 1/4 c balsamic vinegar towards the end of simmering and rather than pouring the sauce over the chicken, I prefer to cook the chicken in the sauce for a few minutes prior to serving. Thanks for posting this memorable recipe!
