      Tried this recipe last night for supper...fabulous! I added capers, near the end of the main simmering stage (had them on hand and needed to use them up!), and that added a nice touch. I also substituted basil paste (the minced kind in a tube, found in the fruit & veg section of the refrigerated produce section of the grocery store) as I had no fresh basil available. All in all, wonderful and I will definitely make it again!

      This recipe is Phenomenal! The chicken was very moist. I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned. The garlic was great in that it was like a roasted garlic that was soft and really good tasting. I simmered the chicken for longer -- 1 hour. But I put it on low and added more broth, wine so the taste will permeate throughout. Next time I will make it with rice to soak up more of the juices. My husband talked about this chicken dinner all night. THANK YOU! Definitely a family favorite.
