    I used skinless boneless chicken thighs, more celery, and one cup less wine than asked for. It was delicious. Thanks so much for the original recipe. - 1/5/09

    Thank you! I really enjoyed this. I used pearl onions instead of vidalia, and I made it with a Pinot Noir. It was a fabulous meal. - 2/11/08

  • Loved this!! Thrilled at how well it turned out! I used boneless, skinless free range chicken thighs, since that's what I had on hand. I'll actually make it that way so as to avoid the skin :-). Thanks for sharing this recipe :-). It's a keeper! - 6/6/13

  • This was fantastic! I marinated the chicken pieces and veggies in the wine with a bit of water, the veggies, 2 thyme stalks and a bay leaf for 2 hours, then removed the chicken and coated it in flour and browned it, returned it to the marinade and added the broth (I used homemade chicken broth). - 2/19/12
