For those who found it watery try draining the tinned tomatoes and it should come out much nicer! - 09 Apr 2012

This dish was so easy and end result was really yummy. followed the recipe exactly except used 3 large chicken breasts on the bone. I finsished it in the oven @ 200 for 40 mins without the lid on which made any excess water evaporate and was left with perfect thick stew and chicken well browned which looked great. I had it with Quinoa which complimented it lovely making it a low gi receipe. - 12 Aug 2012
