I thought this was a fabulous dish while the rest of the family was luckwarm. I used boneless skinless thighs and breasts for the legs and it came out wonderful. I served this over rice cooked in chicken broth. I thought the spice blend was right on and with the wine, tomato paste and garlic I was in heaven!

Well this must have been good, it disappeared so quickly I didn't even get to try any! I ran out of white wine, so I substited with red wine - apparently it was yum!

I used skinless bone-in thighs for this, but otherwise didn't change a thing. It made for a tasty, easy dinner on a cold night. I served it over noodles, and offered shaved parmesan cheese at the table. Next time I would reduce the broth to 1 cup, as I'd have liked the suace a little thicker.
