Great recipe. I used boneless thighs fried them in olive oil and garlic. I also added thyme. Very flavorful, but next time I will double the sauce portion. I didn't bother with peeling the tomatos...what am I, Emril Lagasse? ..but I did seed the tomatos as the recipe called for. If there was a difference to peel the tomatos, i'm not sure what benefit that would give me, because the dish was excellent without the extra work in peeling the tomatos.

I found this recipe when looking for something to do with a left over bottle of white wine from the day before. This has to be one of my favourite chicken recipes I've ever tried. I used half red onion along with white onion as I love the way red onion and balsamic vinegar go together. I also used twice as much wine as the recipe asked for, to give it a bit of an extra kick. Like others I sauted the mushrooms breifly over a very high heat to brown them off. I also used chicken breasts as I was only cooking for two people. The recipe creates a really nice thick and rich (yet light) sauce that you can lavish over the chicken, mushrooms and onions. I served it with a side of bulgar wheat and briefly stemed vegetables. I think it would also be great with rice or pasta. It's definitely the kind of dish that can be dressed down for a home-evening meal or dressed up for a dinner party. I will be making this over and over! Yummy!



Fantastic dish! Sophisticated taste, make sure to have rice to go along with dish, we thought we'd detour from the recipe and have fresh baked bread, it just didn't cut it for us.
