      This is comfort food! It's very pretty and tasty. I added an additional 1/2 cup chicken stock to make it more saucy for the rice. Also, since I used chicken breasts, I didn't plan on it cooking as long as if I'd used a cut up chicken or parts, so I cooked it about 15 minutes once everything was added. It has great flavors! This is a great and healthy family style one dish meal! Thanks, Pneuma! Made for PRMR.

      Wonderful! A simple and hearty recipe that uses ingredients I always have on hand. I increased the amount of veggies overall, so I also added a can of diced tomatoes and a bit of chicken stock to make sure everything cooked through. Just lovely - thanks for sharing.

      DH was the only one who liked this dish. I thought it tasted OK but it wasn't really to my liking. I cooked it 45 mins as stated but the potatoes weren't done. Cooking it for that long made the chicken dry & a little tough. If I was to make again I would cook the potatoes before hand then add them, cutting the cook time in half so the chicken would be juicer.

      MADE FOR ZWT 4. This is our dinner dish for tonight, but it's been tasted and pronounced a delicious, down-home, stew-type garlicky dish which we always enjoy! It's not haute cuisine; it's warming home fare. I could not find 2 red bell peppers, only packets with 3 colours, so I used a yellow and a red. I made no real changes to your recipe except I added more herbs, as I felt a pinch of each was not enough! I also added a tiny splash of water as my tomato paste was very thick, and I added more salt than a pinch! Thanks for a delightful dinner!! I'll make brown basmati, fresh veggies and a salad to go with it. Thank you!!!

      This is a wonderful one-dish meal. We halved the recipe and this made plenty for 4 people. We added some paprika and also left out the potatoes so as to serve it over leftover pasta. This is a great dish with lots of flavor.

      This was a good, easy, one dish meal. The only thing I really did different was to use chicken breasts and red wine instead of white. I was afraid it wouldn't be enough liquid and the potatoes would stick, but it worked out perfectly on both accounts. Thanks, Pneuma!

      Terrific dinner. Despite the time required for this recipe it is very easy to prepare and for most of the cooking time you can do other things while the dish slowly simmers. I made a few modifications to suit my lowfat lifestyle but tried to do so without compromising the underlying flavors of the dish. First, I reduced the olive oil to a mere tablespoon and I prepared the recipe skinless chicken thighs. Since both modifications resulted in less liquid (in the form of fat) in the stew like sauce, I added about 1/2 cup of chicken broth. The rosemary and thyme in mine were fresh snipped from the garden and really enhanced the tomato sauce. Also with the long cooking time the onions just about melted and added a nice dimension. A definite keeper. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
