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!
