This turned out so well that my husband said we could serve it to the president! LOL Changed it a bit...Seasoned the chicken ofcourse, added a little sugar, oregano, and basil to the tomatoes. I made it all on the stove top as well. Very very good!

This is a fabulous recipe with lots of flavour. Next time I will add some fresh basil as a finishing topper once it comes out from the broiler.

Great recipe...I only had part boned chicken breasts, so I browned them all over, and then put them in a baking dish, made the sauce and poured over, cooked them till just about done and then put the cheese on and browned it....delicious! — May 30, 2006 Made this again last night using Quorn fillets...It was still good!!!
