    I made this for the first time today for was delicious and so very easy! The previous reviews were exceedingly helpful. I used the stewed tomatoes and then added a container of grape tomatoes and it was a perfect amount of tomatoes. This is fabulous and I really recommend it!

    This is delicious! I added diced green bell pepper in with the garlic and mushrooms and a small chopped onion. Simmered this in the sauce and then re introduced the chicken parts and simmered it all together. I added a little cajun flair to mine and this way it can be served over rice or pasta. I love this dish. I is so simple to prepare and with just an asparagus salad, it is perfect for any day's evening meal.

    This dish was delicious! I added red pepper flakes to give a little spice. Like the idea of adding bell peppers. Will try that next time.

    This was a tasty recipe and easy to make -- the chicken ended up being very tender and full of flavor. I used cherry tomatoes instead of canned and it still had great tomato taste and cooked down in the same amount of time recommended in the recipe. Enjoy!

    I liked this! I used 1 chicken breast and added a lot more veggies and garlic (4 cloves of garlic, extra tomatoes, squash, TONS of mushrooms, green bell pepper). I also added a little crushed red pepper and let everything simmer for a little while...Probably about 30 minutes. I served with a super greens salad and some whole wheat spaghetti!

    This was really good. I sauteed onions with the garlic and added some white wine to lift the brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Then added the mushrooms and some zuccini.

    This was Delish, and easy. I double the tomatoes though, and used plum shaped tomatoes in the large can. I also made a crispy bread to soak up the juices, not one bit left over
