    It won't become a family favorite but it is really easy to make and cheap. For a bachelor it could be a good option as you can freeze the things in sauce by serving and then just cook some rice or make a salad and you have a meal.  -  17 Feb 2010


    I have made this twice. I Followed the recipe exactly the first time I made it. I do this with all the recipes I rate to be fair, but I liked it even better the second time I made it. The second time I made it I seasoned the chicken with the spices and browned the thighs in light tasting olive oil with onion slices, then added the tomatoes. Simmered for 45 minutes, then added a splash of white wine, lime juice and fresh cilantro and cooked a minute or 2 longer when wine was cooked down. I Served it over white rice. Will definitely make again and again and use more tomatoes. Update 7/17/17, I made this for the first time in a while. I never make anything the same way twice lol, this time I did not add wine, lime or cilantro (because I didn't have any). Instead, I added a little chicken broth and curry powder and topped it with sour cream before eating it. I was hungry for a curry dish and this was fabulous!! I still seasoned and browned the chicken with sliced onions first, then added tomatoes and chicken broth and simmered. Yummy!! Great base tomato chicken recipe!!!  -  20 Oct 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was sooooo good. I only had 6 legs, I used a teaspoon of all the seasonings and through in a can of tomato sauce for extra gravey over rice. I also only used 2 tomatos. Yum yum. I will use this again and again.  -  15 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
