I loved this recipe! I did make some changes though. I was only cooking for two and used chicken tenders(about 8) instead of a whole chicken. I used 8oz. of tomato sauce and put about 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar. My guy isn't really a vinegar guy, so I tamed it down using a little bit of sugar, some basil, and a dash of savory. Very tasty!! Thank you for this recipe!

Holy vinegar! This ran me completely out of apple cider vinegar, and only put a cup in. Even with toning down the vinegar, it was pretty much unpalatable. No one would touch it except me (the vinegar lover) and even I had trouble with it.

This is very similar to my family's dish for more than a hundred year I'm still trying to find out where they got this from because no other Vietnamese know it. It taste very good and I love it!

This was an ok dish, it is good if I am short on time. Next time, I will cut down the vinegar by 1/2.

Sooooo good...I added a little extra garlic and put it on top of couscous.

The most nutritious vinegar is raw apple cider vinegar, and cooking destroys the beneficial enzymes. I like cooking this with less vinegar and adding some fresh raw vinegar at the end. (Raw apple cider vinegar can easily be used for a delicious salad dressing, with olive oil, mustard, etc.)

This recipe, I determined after cooking it for work one day, is basically chicken in homemade ketchup. Not that it's bad, but I did throw in some spices and crushed red pepper just to spice it up a little.

This was really good and an easy, quick substitute for chicken cacciatore. It was very flavorful and the chicken was extremely tender and moist.
