I love this dinner. It's really delicious and it's one of those dishes that has a richness that belies it's ease of preparation. The key to it's wonderful flavor is to take a bit of time and cook the ingredients correctly to get the most flavor out of them. The chicken cooks quickly so that it browns and you create those lovely little brown bits in the pan. The veggies cook in stages but all of them cook low and slow. The sauce simmers for a turn then everything goes into the pool and cooks a bit more. All these stages build levels of yummy flavors. The ingredients are all wonderfully flavorful as well so, as batman would say, KAPOW! You end up with a dish that is fabulous. The original recipe for this dish came from a blog called Dinners for a Year and Beyond. I've adapted it for my fam so that it has more sauce (My favorite part) and more garlic and herbs. It may seem like lots of garlic but it becomes pretty mellow in the sauce. I served it over spaghetti but also with a loaf of good Italian bread so that we could sop up the incredible sauce. I'm talking Serious Yum!
