With just a few tweaks, this is 5 stars. I doubled the fresh herbs and held off putting in the basil until the last 10 minutes of cooking. Before I browned the chicken I dredged it in flour seasoned w/ s&p, and a trace of chipotle powder for a touch of smoke, as I don't eat red meat (the bacon). Since I used the flour and no bacon, I added a bit more oil before sauteeing the veggies. I included a couple of coarsely diced carrots and 2 minced cloves of garlic w/ the onions & mushrooms, as I'd seen in other, similar recipes. Two full-sized tomatoes make a lb. if, like most Americans, you don't have a food scale. For the cooking wine, I chose a decent Garnacha--an inexpensive, low tannin, Spanish red, but if you can get Dolcetto on sale that would be great. Don't forget to offer lots of crusty Italian bread to sop up the sauce.
