    Great recipe! I used three thighs (That is how Costco packs them) with bone and skin. I increased the amount of oregano to 1 tbls. I added 1 cup of chicken broth and prior to adding the chicken back in, I added 8 oz, of bow tie pasta. Made a great one skillet dinner.

    I used 4 chicken thighs because that's just a preference with braised chicken dishes for me but I loved the addition of the lemon zest and capers in there!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

Our family moved to Florida from New York in the 90's, so I've brought not only many of the recipes my family has passed down, but have learned to cook some great Southern dishes as well.? When I found RZ, it opened up a whole new world of cooking -- cuisine from different countries, tried-and-true family hand-me-down recipes, and some interesting and delicious dishes I would never have found on my own.
