Fantastic! This really is a wonderful, filling, and comforting. I made this, following the instructions, except I used a combination of legs and thighs. The white beans and tomatoes are an excellent combination. The finished dish was very pretty and very tasty. I served it with warm sourdough bread. Truly a delightful dish. Thanks, Miss Bev for another wonderful recipe.
I made this last night because it seemed like the perfect dish on a snowy day. My husband liked it but didn't rave. I loved it. My husband likes mashed potatoes with this type of dinner so I did that but I was happy to eat it with my bread. I didn't feel like going out into the cold so I cooked some store bought pizza dough and it was a perfect meal. It's very pretty and I'm sure the leftovers will be even better.
DD & her BF said this was just ok, I loved it. A true winter comfort food! Removed the skin before serving as I did not like the texture of it after it had simmered. Tasted even better the next day for lunch. Thanks!
