"This was a great easy dish. I used fire roasted canned tomatoes instead of the fresh. I doubled the recipe so I used 2 cans and drained them slightly. I reduced the chicken broth by 1/3 and added a can of artichokes in water (drained). I served with roasted asparagus and cresents. Even my kids ate it! It also made great left overs. I will make this one again."
