This was pretty good...not excellent but pretty dang good. I took the suggestion of marinading the chicken in white wine (chardonnay) for a few hours; I also sprinkled it w/ marjoram, garlic salt & pepper w/ the marinade. I made sure, when sauteing the chicken, that my heat was up high enough so that I could get a nice caramelized coat on the chicken. Leave it alone & don't turn it over until it has caramelized... this adds lots of flavor to the drippings & to the chicken. I too used a can of stewed tomatoes (w/ italian seasoning) instead of fresh tomatoes & I added a bit more wine to the skillet when I added the tomatoes. I didn't think this was an unattractive dish at all. In fact when I was plating it on a platter, my husband commented that it looked pretty. I served this w/ mushroom flavored basmati rice (I added some sliced red grapes to it) & steamed broccoli w/ butter. Will make again.

nothing great, but very easy and my kids ate it all! Tastes great with the leftover white wine!

Easy and very tasty. Made the house smell great! I sauteed spinach in garlic and olive oil and served it over that. Makes it a much more visually appealing meal and look darn elegant!

This was good and easy. I didn't measure the salt and pepper, just sprinkled it on both sides and added a little seasoned salt,too, since this had been reviewed by a few as bland. It wasn't bland, and I agree with a previous reviewer who mentioned it reminded someone of chicken cacciatore. The tomatoes did add that taste. I'm not a fan of foods with a strong wine taste, so I did half chicken broth, half white wine. We also added a jar of artichoke hearts, and we ate it with rice and green beans. I will definitely use this recipe again, and will experiment with add-ins.

Good, but I know what to improve on for next time. I did the boullion (someone suggested--to make the sauce thicker) and i used garlic pepper to flavor the chicken. It came out very salty (and i love salt, so this was bad) so next time i'll probably just skip the boullion. I had to use canned stewed tomatoes, which was fine, but I think fresh would be better. I marinated the chicken for about an hour in the wine and it came out nice and tender. I used cooking wine (the only white wine i had) and it came out fine. All in all - total winner, but next time I'll minimize the salt factor.

This was very good. I added some fresh basil to this and I believe it made all the difference.

I added a TBSP of crushed red pepper flakes and a TBSP of lemon juice to give it some zing! Yumm!

Excellent recipe! I followed the recipes as written but I also added canned mushrooms and quartered artichoke hearts. So quick and easy!
