  1. Why would you need to cook this so long? Brown the chicken, plus 35-40 minutes? Nah.

    Peter says: Josh, you’re right! I checked the recipe again and under the stain it was 35-40 minutes total cooking time including preparation of the sauce. I’ve changed that in the recipe.

    P.S. I used my $1/ounce extra-virgin olive oil in a salad dressing last night; it was worth the money, but not for ordinary use in the Great Recession. Everyday snob appeal is out these days – and is doubtful even in good times, the culinary version of conspicuous consumption.

  2. This was wonderful – you know I printed out the recipe and made it, don’t you – but I substituted brown rice for the pasta since I was out.

    Tender and juicy and just right for a single guy like me. I froze the other portions and had it again the other night. Still fine eating.

    Thanks again.
