This was just okay. I thought that the chicken pieces turned out WAY too tough - perhaps cooking them in the skillet and adding them to the sauce at the last minute with the tomatoes and green onions would solve that problem.


This recipe was excellent - after a few modifications. I do believe the chicken turned out to be tough and a little flavourless. After that I decided to use prawns instead. It was great, they absorbed the sauce's flavour! I just used cooked frozen prawns. I also added extra tomotos, green onions, italian seasoning for extra flavour and thickened the sauce near the end My changes: -Rinse frozen cooked prawns in cold water to thaw slightly -Saute with garlic for about 1 - 2 minutes -Add sauce ingredients as instructed - Add 1 tsp. or more italian seasoning (however much you like) -Near the end of the cook time add small amounts of flour to thicken the sauce to desired consistency (otherwise I found it to be a little too watery) -complete directions as instructed I made this for guests and they loved it.


This was a very easy and delicious recipe. I used all chicken broth, sauted onion, mushrooms and garlic first (before browning the chicken), and added a small can of chopped tomatoes w/ green chili (instead of the fresh tomato - mostly because I didn't have one). I also omitted the cheese. It was great without it. Everyone enjoyed the end result.
