If you wish you may make this a day ahead and let it mellow in the fridge or just make and serve. It may be doubled. Personally I like spicy and would add an additional tsp of Cayenne. This recipe is not very spicy. Use your favorite pasta or if you prefer serve with rice. Tip: To cube the chicken have it half frozen before cutting. You may substitute regular vinegar but balsamic is best.

We liked this recipe. It was easy to make. The cayenne gave it nice heat, of which I used a heaping 1.5 tsp. We thought maybe the other flavors needed to meld more; thus your idea of letting it meld in the fridge might be a good one, which we did not do. Followed the recipe as written and served over penne. Thanks!
Outstanding! Yummy! I did not have any sun-dried tomatoes, added greens and it still came out delicious!
This was absolutely delicious. I made some changes based on what I had in the house and personal preferences. Most are minor: red onion instead of shallots, red pepper flakes instead of cayenne, 15 oz can of beans, and a whole yellow bell pepper instead of just a 1/4 c. My major change was using water instead of chicken broth because I'm just not a fan. Don't like salt. I also reduced the fluid amounts to 1/3 c of wine and 2/3 c of water. Then I added white pepper to make up for the chicken broth seasoning. This dish is SOOO flavorful that I don't think it needs the chicken broth flavor. My husband loved it at least as much as I did. Oh - I also left off the cheese because I can't eat dairy. Again, it's so, so tasty that it needs nothing else!
