"This was tasty. I used fresh tomatoes and mushrooms instead. I also added crushed red pepper to give the chicken a kick. I will make this again. It was so easy and great for a weekday meal!"
"very good and easy"
"I made this yesterday for dinner. It was really simple, and I did make some alterations. I used chicken breasts instead of bone in chicken and I didn't have diced tomatoes, so I cut up canned whole tomatoes. I did double the spices as per other review suggestions, but used garlic powder instead of garlic cloves. Boiled some linguine and took the chicken out and stirred the noodles into the sauce. It was tasty, but it's definitely lacking something. Not entirely sure what tho. I will make it again to play with it some. Wish I had tomato sauce or paste to add to it, will try that next time and probably increase the spices, or actually get fresh garlic heh."
"I am not a very good cook but this recipe looked easy. It turned out great! I used fresh tomatoes (about 8) from my garden and chicken breasts. Only problem was that there weren't enough left-overs. I'll have to make it again - soon. Thanks."
