This was fantastic! In spite of what the chef says, Peppadew peppers are the real secret ingredient. Don't be tempted to use cherry peppers, it will not be the same and not in a good way!

Had good flavor

Terrific! Made as written using Mazzetta Sweet Cherry Peppers. Could not find butter beans so I substituted with Cannellini. Also had about 6 large button mushrooms which I quartered and added with the artichoke. I would say that this had medium heat, which suits my wife and me just fine. Will definitely make again.

If you like hot spicy food this is a must! The only thing I did differently is cut the chicken off the bone and added it to the soup instead of pouring the soup over the chicken leg. I also used a little extra chicken broth to make it more like a soup. It was awesome would make it again!

I did not care for this recipe.

This is a tasty recipe that's great to use up leftover rotisserie chicken from the grocery store deli. I made broth from the bones and used all the leftover chicken for the dish. It's just my wife and I, so we had plenty of chicken left. We have Hungarian hot wax peppers growing in the garden so used those instead of cherry peppers. Other than that, followed the recipe pretty closely and it turned out great! Definitely keeping this recipe.

Go light on the red pepper flakes and add only half the broth for a hearty, but not too spicy dish.

Very good, I made dumplings on top of the liquid. Will make again
