I made this on Labour Day and had to substitute for items I didn't have on hand. (Substituted asparagus for the zucchini, italian seasoning for the garlic powder and balsamic vinagrette for the italian dressing). We really, really enjoyed it and I'd like to try it again with the proper ingredients. My only regret is that we didn't have any white wine to drink with it.
It's an easy, fast dinner. Instead of leaving the chicken in the pan with the veggies, I removed the chicken and then added it at the end to make sure it didn't get soggy. It worked pretty well. Served over couscous.
For the person who's chicken turned out soggy---make sure to brown the chicken very well over medium high heat to sear and create a crust. The main point of the flour is to thicken the sauce while cooking. Also, I make my own italian dressing, as the bottled kind has way too much sodium for my likeing and also to many other "strange ingredients"
This was a great dish. We used shrimp instead of chicken (cook separately and add shrimp at the end or they will be over done), vegetable stock instead of chicken stock, and extra zucchini in place of the mushrooms. We also did what other commenters said and used balsamic vinegar instead of Italian. We served it over couscous. I'll definitely be making this again!! It had great flavors, I cleaned my plate. We made the '4 servings' but it was just enough for two people.
This was good, but my chicken got soggy so I would skip flouring the chicken. Very good!!
I substituted carrots for the zucchini, and used a balsamic vinaigrette instead of the Italian dressing. Served it over wild rice--very glad I made enough for leftovers.
This was pretty good. I took another reviewers advice and skipped the flour. Next time I will add the vegetables and chicken at the same time, the vegetables were a little too crunchy for our taste.
I made this as is but increased the amount of garlic powder to 2 teaspoons...delicious!! We had it for dinner with rice and with bowtie (farfallle) pasta - YUMMO both ways!
