First of all, we really liked it. I did use 1/2 cup of basil, and we loved that. I fried it just a minute or so and it was crispy, I also added about three cloves of freshly minced garlic just before I added the wine and broth. But I never know what kind of wine to use, I used Fetzer Chardonnay. But, here we go. I don't know if my Chicken breasts are always too large. It said to cook till chicken is done and sauce is reduced. How reduced should it be? If it is covered the sauce isn't going to reduce very much. So mine didn't reduce much . I did simmer the for about 35 minutes That is OK, I added a little of Wondra with some leftover Chicken broth that was left in the can to thicken a little. Not much... But the directions were not good at that point. I usually don't alter a recipe at all, but.... Cherry tomatoes were 3.99 for a pint, that is more than my chicken cost on sale. (I was lucky and believe this or not, I paid only .79 a pound for split chicken breasts with the bone, 12/5/2009) So I used a can of diced tomatoes, very well drained and put on paper towels to drain them more. I put them with the chicken and sauce and turned off the heat. They were still heated through.We loved the end result. I really didn't alter the recipe that much and am happy to know I could use the canned tomatoes, altho I think I would prefer the cherry, if I had them Four stars because they really don't tell you how much to reduce the sauce. A keeper for sure.
