This was a hit. The sauce was so smooth.
First attempt: FANTASTIC. I converted this to a slow cooker dish. I browned the chicken thighs as described then set aside. I then prepared the vegetables as above. I omitted the sugar and kicked it up a notch with Calabrian Chilies (Italian Bomba from Trader Joe's') B A M ! Layered sauce over chicken in crock pot- auto setting: 2hrs high, 4hrs low. Fall off the bone spectacular. Served over flat Amish Egg Noodles. YUM-OH, No survivors!!
Was delicious added a little grape jelly to sweeten a bit
Thank you. I'm picky but I like this recipe, esp for summer when I just want stove-top cooking. I always add a pinch of cinnamon to tomato-based Italian recipes. : )
I've made this recipe twice since the "stay at home order" and everyone Loves it. Making it again today, thanks for the delicious recipe!
The recipe was good. We’ll have it again for sure. I did not include the green pepper and used a can of mushrooms since I did not have fresh.
A reviewer already asked this question but never received an answer. Why do you reserve juice from tomatoes? I was making this thinking you’d use it later, but was not in recipe. Wound up using half of the liquid because I was unsure. Turned out good, but was wondering if I was supposed to not use extra juice or not. Which goes to show, always read a recipe all the way through before attempting it.
I would make this recipe for company. Delish. Used white wine instead of red; no sugar and chicken broth instead of tomato sauce because I didn’t have tomato sauce. Great recipe!
Just trying this, why does the recipe say to reserve the juice from the canned tomatoes?
Unbelievably easy; barely took 15 min to prep. Hubs declared it Top 10. Looks like a lot of ingredients, but it’s not – standard stuff, almost no waste. I used a pressure cooker to speed it along, but you could also do a crock pot on 8 hrs Low (prep the night before, dump and stir before work) to make it more weeknight friendly. Makes quite a lot of sauce – if you are only feeding 2 people, I would eyeball it before adding the chicken, and consider freezing half. Then just cook enough chicken for the immediate need.
