      This was excellent -- a thick, rich sauce with great flavorings. I doubled the chicken, reduced the broth to two cups, added a can of diced tomatoes and doubled all of the spices. I chopped the onions, celery and carrots together in the food processor. Applegate Sweet Italian Sausage kept the fat and the sodium down. Next time I'll cut the chicken into small pieces before cooking. My honey said this was a great winter stew -- I'll be making it again. Thanks!

      Delicious! Rich and full of flavor and texture. I probably added only 2 cups of chicken stock because I wanted it to be a bit thicker (and I wanted to leave plenty of room for adding the full two cups of wine!) Thanks for sharing.

      This recipe makes a rich and delicious sauce for pasta. I halved the recipe and used turkey Italian sausage. Started it around 4 pm then just let it simmer on the stove, stirring occasionally. We had enough left to freeze for another meal for the two of us. Thanks - I hope to be making it for 20 years, too!
