Double Tomato Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by MMers

Here's a change from the same old, same old. The fennel gives this recipe a nicely different flavor. We served it over brown rice but pasta or potatoes would be equally good. We also used 8 small chicken thighs in place of the chicken pieces.

This turned out to be very good! I do think the servings are rather generous, but some people like more meat than others. I used red wine, and added a very small amount of sugar, because the sauce seemed a little sour (either because of the tomatoes or the wine.) I halved the recipe, but didn't change anything else. The sauce actually was better after being left overnight. The fennel was more noticeable, too, which I liked. Thank you very much for posting this easy, delicious recipe.
