I forgot to add the water and this turned out good. There was plenty of liquid after cooking it to still thicken it but I did add a little water then to just give it more of the sauce. My whole family liked this.

I've made this recipe a bunch of times and it's always so easy and turns out so well. I also serve over rice--somehow it tends to work better with brown rice, I think the nutty flavor complements the chicken. It's best to use a cut up whole chicken, and I keep the skin on and brown the skin first in a frying pan. I add all the initial ingredients except for the chicken, salt to taste (don't want to be tasting no salmonella), and then add the chicken. Otherwise I follow the recipe to the T and it turns out great each time. Thanks!

This is a wonderful recipe. My husband and three daughters devoured it in one day. The only thing I did different was use a 16 oz container of canned tomatoes, and I substituted a red pepper for the green one, for the simple reason I only had red pepper and din't want to travel to the store. Also, I served it over rice ... again, because we had no egg noodles in the house, but rice. It was delicious that way, but next time I want to try it with the noodles.
