      I added a bit more garlic, but this was a great dinner. When I began braising, I thought it would be a thin gravy, but it really was beautiful. Very tasty, very easy, very good.

      Very easy and good. I did use thighs but I don't think that made any difference. It was tender and moist but lacked a tiny bit of something. Its worth trying again but I may add more garlic and more salt. I might use some cayenne pepper and I will still use the wine. good recipe
