      This was great! Inspired by a similar recipe, I added cut-up red potatoes and about 1/2 c red wine, and 8 oz of mushrooms. This made for a very yummy stewlike one-pot meal with a delicious rich broth. The fennel is a great touch--I think it's a sadly underutilized herb.

      Wonderful weeknight meal, served with Quick Parboiled Rice - 2-Qt. Pressure Cooker. Used 4 chicken thighs and 3 hot Italian sausages, which fed us 2 seniors. I saved the remaining sauce, from which I will discard the congealed fat before topping tomorrow's potatoes. There may be more gourmet recipes, but this smelled wonderful while cooking and satisfied us completely. I will definitely make this again. Note: used Chef Essentials 6-qt. electric pressure cooker, so extended time at pressure to 12 minutes; after starting cooker's climb to pressure, I began measuring and rinsing rice for Quick Parboiled Rice - 2-Qt. Pressure Cooker, which completed before this recipe finished releasing pressure naturally. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.

      This was great! I used 3 leg quarters cut into pieces, and 1 pound of sausage. Served over spaghetti with parmesan on top. Yum!
