So easy and so simple to make. I used chicken breast instead of drumstickls, as with this family the waste with drumsticks is too much for me to bear! I also left out the olives, amd served with mashed potatoes.....but followed everything else exactly. This was one great recipe! So easy to follow and then pop in the oven and wait! The sauce is so thick and rich with great flavours and even the mushroom haters enjoyed this. The whole family enjoyed this so much, everyone really loved it. Leftover's were taken to work for lunch, even a fight over who was getting the last of it next day !!!! Thanks Pat, a great recipe to make after a long day at work, just throw in a casserole wack in the oven and sit back and wait for a wonderful meal!
This is a simple to make dish. I felt that it needed a flavor boost and added garlic as well as Italian herbs. It finished up being a thick rich tasting sauce. Being a bit concerned about the overall calorie total (even though the fat is low) I used skinless chicken breast although I doubt that it really made much of a difference the fact that I made an effort made me feel better.
