  • This was really delicious, great with the brown rice, we made it with chicken breasts & legs, the flavor was very unique, a nice change from the regular chicken dinner. Don't skip the wine in it, that is what gives it the unique flavor. - 1/13/11

  • This is the best chicken recipe I have ever used! Have made it 5 or 6 times and it is excellent. I increased the garlic to 2 cloves. Also, we eat it with no rice or noodles (I think it takes away from the marvelous flavor of the dish. - 2/5/10
