Very good! I had chicken leg quarters that I divided into legs and thighs for this recipe. I did add a bit of seasoning to the chicken before sauteeing it in the oil (adobo, salt, and pepper). Other than that, the only changes I made were to reduce the amount of tomato sauce by half and thicken the sauce with a mixture of 1 Tbs butter and 1 Tbs flour at the end after removing the chicken. I served the sauce over the chicken and some steamed white rice. I'll definitely make this again and again. My 9-year-old daughter asked me to say she feels this is "A Masterpiece"!
Good basic recipe, but as others have said, it needs much more flavor. I added more vinegar, doubled the garlic and began frying the chicken with salt, pepper and cumin. I also used fresh tomatoes made into sauce...but it still needed something...I think some heat. Generally a good recipe, but not spectacular.
Did it in the slow cooker. Ate with mashed potatoes. Browned chicken beforehand with cumin, salt and pepper. Delish!
I used chicken breast and it turned out great!
Not quite sure what to say about this recipe. It did come out tangy but still bland. We added some roasted Anaheim chiles and used 1/2 tsp. ground cumin and 1/2 tsp. whole cumin. Not sure how much balsamic vinegar my guy put in. The sauce was much more flavorful 8 hours later after the spices had a chance to meld and assert themseves. We are going to use the rest of the chicken and sauce for enchiladas tonight. The flavors were not there in such a short cook time. Might try again.
this was amazing! i let it cook for a little longer, more like an hour, and i let the sauce thicken more. it tasted great served over rice. my husband even gave it 5 stars!
My husband and I really liked this! I browned the chicken in hot chicken broth to cut down on calories. I also used one 26 ounce can of Hunt's garlic and herb spaghetti sauce and one 8 ounce can of plain tomato sauce. Next time I will add green peppers and mushrooms to the sauce and will use boneless skinless chicken leg meat instead of the legs because it would make it easier to eat. We had it over spaghetti. Great flavor!
We loved it! Easy & fast to prepare and easy & fast to eat -- my children devoured it so fast!
