This recipe is really, really good; the chicken turned out perfectly moist and tender, and even though the chicken thighs simmered for the last 25 minutes of the recipe, the skin retained much of its crispiness from the browning. The sauce in this recipe has such depth of flavor and I love the fact it uses whole cloves of garlic. When served, they were nice and soft; I just crushed them with my fork and mixed them into the sauce. I didn't have any white wine, so I used white grape juice. I agree with the other reviewer, Jan, this tasted like a gourmet dinner.
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 is great - use kalamata olives ..every time I bring this to work for lunch everyone wants the recipe
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.
Excellent recipe. Very easy and so good over rice. I didn't have the white wine so I skipped it and the dish was still wonderful. Tasted like a gourmet dish. This is definitely a keeper recipe for me. Thanks JustJanS.
Since I used leftover Stewed Tomatoes Jefferson, Stewed Jefferson Tomatoes in place of canned tomatoes -- which already had lots of seasoning, I will just comment. This chicken was very tasty and easy to prepare. I had 4 enormous chicken thighs, so I let them simmer covered for almost 1 hour. The flavors were all complementary and DH and I enjoyed the first of 2 prepared meals !! Thanks, Jan
Great flavor,we love this dish.Thanks
Stupendous, Jan S. I used 1/4 c dried basil since I didn't have fresh. Sounds like a lot but it was great. Also, because I like the saltiness & bite I used oil-cured olives split & pitted. Next time I'll serve it on brown rice; this time my wife decided she wanted some sweet potatoes that needed to be used. Delicious!!!!
Yes this was delicious! it was a very tasty dish, and the olives gave it such a nice taste...I added 1 heaping Tbsp fresh garlic, I don't know weather that was 12 cloves or not, I did not have any white wine, so I subbed with red wine, we enjoyed this with home-made French fries on the side....this is a very good chicken recipe, highy reccomended...I will be making this again, thanks Jan for posting...Kittencal :)
I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe, especially the olives and spices combination - very delicious. When I served it, I added mashed potatoes and salad to make it a rounded dinner. Also, I used less chicken and cut them into cubes which turned out quite well. Great recipe!
