  • Sounds good, I think I will try it with Chicken too - 10/6/10

  • I made this yesterday and it was wonderful. I loved how the raisins soaked in the juices! Could definitely cut this in half as it was a little too much for my family, but the leftovers are very much welcomed. Will be making this again! - 2/24/09

  • I was a little disappointed given the rave reviews this one received. It was ok, but probably not something I would repeat. - 2/6/09

  • I didn't have any beef, so I recalculated this with the recipe calculator using a whole 3 lb. chicken that I'd removed the skin from. OMG this is a great recipe!! I will make this again and again! we loved it. - 1/12/09

  • Love this recipe. There are probably even a few less calories than listed (since you don't consume all of the cooking liquid) Very tender and makes for great leftovers the next day. - 1/5/09

  • This turned out wonderfully! I made a half-recipe, but still used 2 cups of chopped red onion, and served over a baked potato. Would also be good with mushrooms added in, I think. The serving size seemed a little small for dinner portions - perhaps 8 servings instead of 12. - 12/8/08
