This is a nice hearty meal. I had 3 thighs and 3 drumsticks when I made this. I browned the chicken in olive oil. I did use 2 tablespoons of flour. I was glad I did as there was no flour mixture to add in on step 5. Then I used yellow and green zucchini from our garden. Since our garden tomatoes are not ready yet, I used a 14 ounces diced tomatoes, adding them in the last 8 minutes of cooking. I did not add them in on step 8 because I wanted them to retain some shape. We used bread to get ever last drop of this delicious sauce. Made for *Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup 2009* game
