      Made with a bottle of 23 year old Port (skipped the basalmic) - absolutely fabulous! Used the stock & baked uncovered for the last 30 minutes. Had too much sauce to put all in with the chicken so finished the remainder on stovetop. That, combined with the leftover from the chicken pan will be used to make again but quicker. Thanks for a DELICIOUS keeper recipe!

      My Cacciatore recipe is almost exactly like this with one major exception - no chicken stock. Seeing as all of the reviews mention the liquid/runny consistancy of the finished product, I would suggest leaving out the chicken stock, or adding it a little at a time at the end in case the sauce turns out a little thicker than you like. Otherwise, yes dojemi, this is a fabulous version. PS I also add 1 green pepper coarsely chopped.

      This was very nice. I was pleased to find something that used port as we got a bottle for Christmas and don't really drink it. It was quite thin so I left the casserole dish open for half an hour..(probably cooked for about an hour and a half in total)to thinken it. I used those pepperdew peppers which made it a bit spicy...I think I would have prefered what the recipe stated but didn't have any in. I served it with rice. Oh I used boneless breast too only because that's what I had but think the stated thighs would have been nicer. Will definatly make again. Thank you.
