This dish gets a 5 star rating: 4 for the recipe and 1 for all the great suggestions Here’s what I did:
Added carrots: 3 and cut to about 1” “sticks”, placed in small bowl, added water to cover cooked in microwave for 9 mins.
Egg washed the chicken: I beat 2 large eggs with a tblspn of water and covered chicken pieces.
Chicken: Used chicken with bone – more tastier than just meat. Removed skin and fat, but had to add more olive oil.
Doubled all the seasonings: I used half with the flour and added the other half at simmering time! – delish!
Added and replaced some seasonings: (1) Replaced salt with garlic salt. (2) Added Ms. Dash seasoning (did not have Italian Seasonings) (3) Added 1 teaspoon brown sugar – kills tomato acidity! (4) Did not have diced or Italian stewed tomatoes or tomato paste. I used 1 large can (28oz) Crushed Tomatoes with Basil only – nice and thick and flavorful sauce that my wife always buys.
Deleted some veggies: no green peppers or mushrooms -- my kids don’t like them, yet.
Frying: Golden brown fried the lightly, well coated chicken pieces in very low heat.
Wine: Added red wine to hot skillet (no heat) and scraped bits of chicken – this also reduced the wine!
Simmering: Added and gently mixed all the ingredients, including the other half of the seasonings, sugar and carrots. Simmered covered for 45 minutes over low heat.
This came out wonderfully tasty!
My only 2 cents is: make double – as your family and guests will want seconds.
