I followed the recipe almost exactly except I used thick-cut turkey bacon in place of regular bacon. This is an excellent way to use the extra turkey and it's wonderful, delicious comfort food for a chilly evening. Make sure to use generous amounts of salt and pepper and as one reviewer suggested, allow the wine to reduce in earnest before proceeding...

Fantastic way to make chicken. My whole family enjoyed this delicious recipe. I made coconut rice and sugar snap peas to go with. The peaches are a dessert all on their own. The glaze is not too spicy at all so try the recipe as written. I put the olive oil in the glaze and did not rub any on the chicken. Recipe states to add it and video shows him...

I agree with many of the comments that this recipe is too large for the called for baking dish. I used a 9X12and an 8X8 for overflow. I also suggest doubling the number of mushrooms.

This is delicious. I am not a mint fan but used it anyhow and was not disappointed. I love how you are left with "soup" which was great to soak bread in after the salmon was gone. I would caution to see how much salt is in the broth you use and adjust your salt addition accordingly. I can't wait to serve this to company. It's a definite keeper. If...

This is a delicious, simple and quick way to enjoy a different vegetable than the usual suspects that end up on my families dinner plate. I love the amount of pepper recommended but if you aren't a huge fan, I would halve the amount.
