Very good dish. Used a meat thermometer to judge the doneness of the chicken, but it was less than 90 minutes. Delicious, but I think next time I'll use a can of diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning to pour over the chicken. That was my only complaint--the spaghetti sauce on top of the chicken cooked down and got too thick. Served with whole wheat pasta and ladled the remaining sauce over the noodles. Very nice. Also skipped the meat tenderizer, as other reviewers did.
