    I recommend chopping the chicken into bite-size chunks after it has browned, then add the onions and garlic and herbs. Very good. I have made this several times now and enjoy it every time. - 1/15/09

    Eccellent recipe. We also are not wine users and so just added extra chicken broth for the liquid. Also used canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh and was great. Very nice to have the fresh lemon to add flavour. Will definitely make it again. - 7/1/09

    I made this using boneless skinless thighs -recipe didnt' specify- I used lemon juice instead I used Italian herbs and a LOT of garlic as that is our liking. I had frozen peppers & onions on hand so used them which made this recipe very easy and will make again! Be generous with spices! - 4/28/09

    Most of the time, if the recipe calls for wine & you don't have or don't want that, a mild vingar you like will work well as a sub. - 2/15/10
