This was the best chicken I have ever made! It was my first Julia recipe and I am sooooooo impressed with it! I also made her potato salad and Herb biscuits! my husband said it was the best meal I have ever made! I did not use wine and used 1 and a half cups of chicken stock and 1 cup of veggie stock. It came out tasting super Italian and like i was at a gourmet restaurant! Thank you for posting!! This is a must make!

I made this last night. I used chicken thighs and I skinned them. My family could not get enough of it. It was soooo good! Perfect for those cooler nights. I served mine with rice and salad. I used "Menage a Trois" wine, which is a blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, and Cabernet. The house smelled so good and the chicken was fantastic!

I made this with a crock pot and browned the chicken before putting it in the crock with the rest of the ingredients. I found the taste quite bland even though I added other spices and more tomato. Perhaps the taste would have improved a little if I had time to fry the onions before I put them in. I think that three cups of wine was a little much and didn't add to the flavour. Less would have been better. I was so disappointed that that I don't think I am going to try the stove stove version of this either even though I love wine and lots of onions.
