This was very tasty! The only changes I would make would be to add plenty of minced garlic to the sauteed onions, then when the onions are done, blend in a tablespoon or two of tomato paste to ...

This was okay, it didn't have much flavor, even though I added red pepper flakes. I think keeping the bacon in withe the liquid made it soggy and flavorless, next time I would sprinkle it on to...

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 se...

Time I rated this one as I have used it many times - it is excellent - sometimes I have used both red and white wine in this depending what I have left over - either turns out equally well and I...

I didn't have a whole chicken so I used chicken breasts. This recipe was one of the best! I loved the bacon flavoring in the background, not too overwhelming. I did spice mine up quite a bit wit...

I almost never cook with any chicken besides boneless, skinless breasts, but I did make this as the recipe called for. Thankfully the grocery store had whole already-cut-up chickens, so that mad...
