This was so very good! The smell of it cooking was amazing. I cut my chicken (boneless skinless breast) into bite size pieces and I think next time I will use thigh pieces or tenders. The cooking time was a bit too long for the pieces. Next time I think I would mix together the mustard, wine and port before adding it to the pan and then pour it over the garlic tomatoes and chicken. Also, we loved the flavor of the sauce next time I will make some more in a sauce pan and reduce it down a little bit with some flour and butter to make it a bit thicker. Thank you very much!
