    I thought this was a fabulous dish while the rest of the family was luckwarm. I used boneless skinless thighs and breasts for the legs and it came out wonderful. I served this over rice cooked in chicken broth. I thought the spice blend was right on and with the wine, tomato paste and garlic I was in heaven!

    Well this must have been good, it disappeared so quickly I didn't even get to try any! I ran out of white wine, so I substited with red wine - apparently it was yum!

    I used skinless bone-in thighs for this, but otherwise didn't change a thing. It made for a tasty, easy dinner on a cold night. I served it over noodles, and offered shaved parmesan cheese at the table. Next time I would reduce the broth to 1 cup, as I'd have liked the suace a little thicker.

    We enjoyed this chicken dish, I had to increase the legs to 10 and also added in some thighs to serve 5 people and adjust all other ingredients way up! I omitted the rosemary though, I served this with cooked pasta, thanks for sharing Ev!...Kitten:)


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
