Loved the sauce and i also added in shrimp. Turned out wonderful but only personal alteration i would make next time would be to thicken the sauce by using less water and cook for a bit uncovered in the end. Thanks.

The combination of herbs, wine, olive oil, mushrooms and tomatoes make a very nice sauce. I took others advice and made some changes, though. Omitted the water. Added fresh, seeded, diced tomatoes and fresh sliced mushrooms instead of canned. Half sliced green onions and diced white onions. Used chicken tenderloins because that is what I had. Same amount of other ingredients. Followed the directions otherwise. My husband and I really enjoyed this! Will make again. Oh...also threw in some frozen shrimp at the end that needed using up.

I made this recipe, but I made a few changes. I also think there is too much water. I followed almost all instructions (except wine). I also added butter and ground black pepper with lime. Then when chicken was half cooked, I threw half of the water out and kept cooking chicken in high temperature. Then I added more salt. Once chicken was cooked, I added tomato sauce to make the sauce a little more thick. Overall, great recipe!
