    Delicious! I love delicious recipes that have a limited amount of ingredients--just simplifies things. I also love recipes that call for the fresh herbs I have growing on my patio. Any time you brown meat like that, you get splatter--just a fact of life. After I removed the completed chicken from the skillet, I melted 2 T of butter in it, and added a pound of cooked whole wheat spaghetti. The flavor was incredible, with no extra work! Love LSQ!

    JB - You have to turn the heat way up and have the lid off in order to reduce the liquid...made this tonight. also, used a frying pan with higher sides..cuts way down on the splatter

    This was soooo good. I was absolutely amazed at how delicious this chicken turned out. I was the fortunate one to get to eat the two leftover pieces the next day and was swooning over it and craving more! Next time I'll be sure and make enough for two meals. Thank you Lucinda for a great new (and needed) chicken recipe.

    Okay... I have never had such a mess in my kitchen before. I love Lucinda's recipes but this one didn't turn out at all like on tv. I also had too much juice and had to drain some off. The amount of grease that spattered in my kitchen was amazing, event with a grease screen. My family didn't really care for it. But on the positive side, I loved Lucinda's Polenta version, it was creamy and wonderful. This chicken dish is a re-do for me.

    Well, you were right, even with the splatter shield, the stove top was a mess but my daughter who cleans up after the cook (me) said it was well worth it - make it anytime - was wonderful. Enough said. Outstanding recipes that fit our lifestyle wonderfully.

    Thought I'd try something different for a chicken dinner and this was enjoyed by all. My husband said it even was better the next day as he had it for left over. Thanks for the new twist on chicken and easy too!!

    HUGE fan of this at our home! Couscous is another wonderful accompaniment (cooked in chicken broth then tossed with fresh parsley, scallions, butter, and toasted slivered almonds). I have found that a splatter guard is an invaluable kitchen tool! From simply frying bacon on the stovetop to something more complicated as this dish, it makes clean-up much easier. This one is a homerun for sure!

    My stove was nicely splattered too, JB. ;) I think if you pat the chicken dry it won't splatter as much and will sear better. With the liquid, the higher the heat the quicker the liquid reduces; also it needs to be uncovered to reduce quickly. I made this chicken and the mushrooms and put the mushrooms over couscous instead of polenta. Delicious! Love Lucinda's recipes! =)

    Made this tonight to rave reviews. Wasn't sure how it would go over with a family of picky eaters, but no leftovers tonight! Served with Lucinda's polenta (used instant -- the way to go!). Everything was excellent. This one is definitely being worked into the rotation.

    I would love to know how Lucinda cooked this chicken without a stove full of splattered oil, like me. Also, I had way too much liquid. Anyone else have these problems? Any suggestions? This is a re-do for me, trying to figure out where I went wrong!
