      Loved this chicken -what not to love combining all our favorite ingredients with chicken! Not only great tasting it has wow appeal when it comes to presentation. Other than being very genereous with the mushrooms I made as posted making for a wonderful meal - would give you more stars if I could! Thank you for sharing. A recipenap for the Aus/NZ recipe swap # 30.

      I gave it a 4 because the recipe didn't say exactly what to do with some of the ingredients, the finished product was nice, and I loved the mushrooms! Made for the Aus/NZ recipeswap #30 July 2009 :-)

      Yummy! I kept to the written recipe, except I substituted the alcohol content with chicken stock. I used red wine vinegar, (for the vinegar content) wasn't sure which type to use but it seem to work nicely. Only criticism I have of the written recipe was it was a bit vague. I purchased on the bone chicken thighs and drumsticks, but after making the recipe I wished I used diced thighs. I would have preferred a better preparation description for the other ingredients. Example: "mushroom, sliced or chopped". It would have also been easier if the ingredient list was in order of the written recipe. However having to say all this, the flavour was very nice and marinating the chicken in vinegar, made the chicken more tender. Served it with Polenta - Thank you Az G
