This is one of my favorite dishes, it's tasty and good for you. I used thyme because I didn't have bay leaf and I thought it was great. I prefer it with thighs but substituted marinated boneless skinless breasts last time and it was still pretty darn good.
I am making this for the 2nd time. I have this WW cookbook too. I am halving the recipe tonight. I used both garlic and shallots and all the suggested ingredients including lemon zest & parsley (which I don't always have on hand). I cooked a bit longer too cuz these thighs are thick. Gotta love a chick w/ meaty thighs! Took a picture on the stove top while it's simmering! I'll be serving with Recipe#175034, a green salad and some Chardonnay. After serving this t the family, we all felt something was lacking. I have made many WW entrees and sadly, the stuff that makes it taste good is missing. Just nothing special, just ok.
