    I adapted this recipe for two to my skillet pressure cooker...10 minutes with natural release. I used skinless bone in chicken breasts and diced tomatoes instead of stewed tomatoes as we don't care for the sweetness in stewed tomatoes. I had a small amount of cabbage to use up so I threw that into the mix. I used dehydrated minced garlic instead of garlic salt. Sliced the chicken off of the bone and served it with multi-grain blend. Delicious!

    First time using breast meat. Very good , not the least bit dry. I added mushrooms. And instead of stewed tomatoes I added some fresh and store bought grape tomatoes to the sauce. Added a slice of provolone cheese to the top. Prepped everything earlier for convince. Assembled everything and warmed up in the oven. Delish. Cut the breast into small serving sized pieces to serve.

    I thought the recipe looked a little plain but it was delicious!I doubled the veggies and sauce ingredients; and also salt & peppered the chicken before cooking it.
