    This recipe was really good. Easy to make, fantastic flavor. I should have read the other reviewers' comments first, as mine did come out very oily. You could easily reduce the olive oil to 1/2 cup as evelyn/athens suggested. We followed all directions and ingredients as posted and topped with fresh parm. Thanks, Kim!

    Really nice recipe. I decreased the amount of olive oil to about 1 T, added an extra clove of garlic, and some chopped green pepper (just personal preferences). I also added 1 T of tomato paste to help thicken the sauce up a bit towards the end of the simmering. The chicken was so tender and juicy and the sauce was lovely over some multigrain pasta. Thanks for a lovely and tasty dish!

    AUSSIE/NZ Swap May2008- FANTASTIC! I did add an additional clove of garlic as I love garlic. This reminds me of YiaYia's. Not quite the same but so similar it is going into my cookbook! LOVE IT!

    Wow, this is good! That said I really cut the fat back by using no oil at all, I lightly browned chicken thighs (skinned and visible fat removed) in a skillet sprayed with Pam. I them added the onions, garlic and chopped tomato with the stock and seasonings turned the stove to min and left it on a slow simmer for an hr. The end result was very moist and tender chicken with a delicious sauce ( I did add a bit of cornstarch because I wanted it a little thicker). A very easy dish to make and enjoy. Kudo's Kim.

    Very good. I didn't want to use that much olive oil and a half cup was sufficient, for us. Much like the recipe I use. Lots of delicious sauce to serve over the pasta. Comfort food.

    Very good and easy to make! I used chicken breast tenderloins and stewed them in my electric skillet. Instead of fresh tomatoes I used a can of undrained stewed tomatoes. This is a nice change from regular sauce over pasta. Make sure to serve with warm crusty rolls for a wonderful meal!
