Left out the wine and just added 2 shallots, chopped and fried with the garlic. Used the pasta I had on hand. Other than that I followed the recipe and it was a hit all round even with my 6 year old son. Thanks for the great recipe Vino Girl.
The reason why I am giving this 3 stars is because I do not like the sauce. The chicken was great, the tomato sauce was rather bland to me. I did make the chicken the second time and used another sauce, then it tasted great.
Excellent! I was looking for something that tasted different than the spaghetti/lasagna type Italian taste and I found it! I didn't have any fennel and I only had about 1/4 cup of white wine but I didn't miss either one. I sauteed about 1/2 an onion with the garlic like one of the reviews mentioned and I increased the salt a bit. I also used Muir Glen fire-roasted diced tomatoes which gave it a bit of extra zest. I'll definitely keep this in mind for when I have company over!
What a flavorful, quick weeknight dinner that tastes like gourmet fare. This recipe alone would justify always keeping a stash of chicken tenderloins in your freezer. When I make it again (and I will), I'll drain both cans of tomatoes. I added about half a can of tomato paste to get it to the consistency we like, and I added some mushrooms just because we had them and sauteed some diced onions with the garlic. Thanks for a terrific and tasty recipe.
