Hey thanks Bob, my dad was a "USAF Bob", too.. this is a wonderful Sunday dinner dish... and my husband loved it. I used 3 split chicken breasts, bone-in, not skinned... all other ingredients as listed. No flavor overpowers another, and it makes your kitchen smell fabulous! The only other change was that I actually cooked the 3 breasts at 275 degrees F for the first 4 hours then reduced the oven heat to 250 F while I prepared some other dishes. It kept well for 5 hours... all breast meat was juicy and flavorful and not dry at all. This is a wonderful recipe, you should all try this on your next lazy day! Thank you Bob and Kiko's!!

This was an excellent chicken dish that we enjoyed very much! I used thighs and the meat literally fell off the bone. The flavors were very bright and fresh. The presentation was beautiful and would make an excellent dinner to serve to company in either a formal or family style setting. Thank you for sharing this little gem. It's going in my "keeper" file and will be made often.

I just wanted you to know how much I truly loved this dish. I'll admit that I was a bit skeptical. It seemed that there wasn't enough liquid, but I was so wrong. Some might like to know that I had forgotten to defrost my chicken. It was still frozen, but it cooked beautifully. The only change I made, because I had to go with what I had, was that I didn't have any sherry. I know merlot would not normally be a good substitute, but it was absolutely delicious all the same! I agree with the others that it made the kitchen smell lovely all the day long. I'm trying to empty my freezer and I had a bunch of odd pieces of chicken in there. I just threw it all in (some legs, some quarters some boneless thighs, a breast) and all came out juicy and tender. The family truly raved over it. I served it with brown rice that I cooked with a can of tomatoes, broth, garlic and rosemary along with a salad. This was easy and delicious so this is a keeper and will be added to our family favorites list. Thank you so much for sharing!

This recipe is delicious. I did it without the sherry, because I didn't have any. But, it was still so flavorful with the vinegar and garlic. Definitely will make it again!

Superb! We all enjoyed this dish tremendously. Such full, robust flavor and quite easy to prepare. It's definitely going to be made often in my home. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Bob78278. Made for the Spain & Portugal monthly tag game.
