Really good, makes a lot and there's just two of us so I backed it off to 2 tomatoes, 2 chicken breasts, & 2 tsp parsley, but still used 2 cloves of garlic and half a large onion and 1/3 of a large green pepper. I had no white wine, so used Clamato juice. It was fantastic. I used it over rice. I will SO be making this again, this time when I have company.Reply
I cut the recipe in half, and I used high-quality canned tomatoes since the fresh ones are not too pretty right now. It was fairly easy even though it takes a while to make. I used sherry wine. I felt like it was missing something though--next time I would add more garlic (but we LOVE garlic, lol) and maybe some extra herbs of some sort. Thanks for posting!Reply
