This dish is pure comfort-food heaven. Easy and guilt free. I can't wait to try the suggested variation with veal and mushrooms. My husband loved it.


I cooked this tonight and it was great. I served the chicken with rice and spinach. Eveyone in the house from my 15 month old to my 86 year old grandfather liked the dish and cleared their plates. I will add this recipe to our tried and true. Tea


i liked this recipe. i had chicken breasts, so instead of slow cooking them like the recipe suggests for the tougher pieces of meat, i just fried them off in a pan, made the sauce like the recipe said without the meat and added the chicken pieces at the end. it turned out really well and cut the cooking time down to 20 mins. its a perfect dinner for when you havent got a whole lot in your fridge, and its very tasty.
