Tried this recipe and it was a sinch to make. It does seen bland until you serve with all the add-in's at the end - that is what makes it flavorful and filling.

I finally tried this recipe and to save some calories substituted water for the milk otherwise followed recipe. It turned out so creamy and delicious it will be hard going back to the stovetop method. On stove top mine usually has a gritty consistency I need to keep adding liquid to keep it from being overly thick. This way it was a no brainer....

She did say this is for all of millions of people who do not own a tagine cooking vessel and want to try some different flavors combinations. The show is Ten Dollar Dinners friend not "how to cook authentic Moroccan food". P.S. Everything IS cooked together in a pot low and slow.

I make this dish all the time from Anne's other show: Secrets of Restaurant Chef. Never tried it with polenta before. I always use crusty bread for soaking up the delish broth. This dish is one of my all time favorites.

Excellent directions for grilling chicken wings. Excellent recipe that is out of the ordinary using fresh herbs which made these wings some of the best I have ever had and the best I have ever made at home on my grill. It can be some work to get the herbs under the skin of tiny wings, so be sure to use jumbo wings. "

Excellent flavor. I would suggest tasting the hot cherry peppers before adding the quantity suggested along with the hot pepper vinegar. Mine was extremely spicy. I diluted the sauce to my taste and I love it and will make again. I used skinless chicken thighs."

Not impressed with this as a main dish as shown. I found the sauce far too heavy and not enough garlic flavor. Garlic cloves come in all sizes and maybe a better measurement would help here - maybe I did not use enough. All in all, not enough flavor for the calories it packs."

Exciting recipe. I am a sucker for the agrodolce flavor and this did not disappoint me. Easy to prepare and you can really wow someone with the flavorful results. I felt like I was in Sicily. Each bite with the combination of olive, almonds and chicken just made me go yummmmmmmmm!! (I used golden raisins instead of currents - no problem.)...

Fabulous unexpected flavor. I just put this in my favorite Italian dish, let it sit out on kitchen countertop (covered) and enjoy for a day or so and pretend I am in Italy. It just gets better the longer it sits like caponata.

Fabulous! Followed the recipe for country ribs exactly and this is a real keeper. I make country style ribs quite a bit but always with barbaque sauce. This recipe didn't seem like it would have that much flavor with the simple ingrediants but it DOES! And serving it with the creamy polenta makes it good enough for any special occasion.""
