Love this! I used two chicken breasts, instead of thighs, and seasoned them with onion powder when I browned them since I didn't have an onion on hand. I used orzo instead of risoni, using the same directions, and it turned out great. Other than that, I made the recipe as written, and it fed me and my two roommates. It probably would have served four, because we were so incredibly stuffed afterwards!

This was such a delicious meal, complete on its own. The only change I made was I used regular brown onions instead of red onions (it was all I had at home). It was quick to make and very filling. Thank so much for posting Kiwi Kathy

Loved this!! Used brown onions, and 8 v small skinless thighs. Everything else the same. Quartered the tomatoes, and next time will cut the chats, so they absorb more flavour. I really like that there are so many textures in this dish! Made for Aussie swap August 2012
