Inexpensive and very tasty. Makes a very nice, almost carmelized sauce on its own. If I cant afford organic chicken then I go to Wegmans and they have a "Food You Feel Good About" line of foods , and the meats have no hormones, antibiotics, preservatives, etc... I get a pack of 8 chicken drumsticks for 2 dollars or less to make this dish. Most of the ingredients are things usually found around the house. I usually use more garlic for my 3 yr old who likes extra on everything. Hope it works for you.

Excellent chicken dish ~ we really enjoyed this. I did make it with one in chicken breasts as they were on sale this week and I used the Vidalia onion as I couldn't find cipollini's. A nice meal on a cold winter night. Thanks for posting this jennifer. Made for Zaar Cookbooks Tag.

This is such a great recipe. I usually have all the ingredients on hand to make this and when I'm in a hurry I turn the oven up to 350 and it takes a little over an hour to make. I use 1 clove of fresh chopped garlic (plus the power) and sprinkle some basil and oregano as well. So flavorful! Wish I would have found this one a while back as I am always on a tight budget. :)
