Accidentally made for Australia/NZ Swap #26 !! Prepared with 2 skinless/boneless breasts -- and the FULL amount of sauce ! I did not have fresh herbs, but dried did very well. No anchovies -- DH would have left home !! This was a great combination of flavors - and I have PLENTY of sauce for another meal ! Thanks for posting, Jewelies.

This dish is right up my alley, it has extreme flavors that blend well together, I did make a few amount adjustments since I used 6 chicken breasts, I will make this again since we really enjoyed this, thanks for sharing!...Kitten:)
