I made this last night and It was really easy and quite tasty. I agree, it did need something else, so I added some lemon pepper and some fresh squeezed lemon juice and it really made a big difference.

I loved this recipe! The combination of the tomatoes, fennel and capers was fantastic. I think I would use bone in chops next time and brine them before cooking as they were a bit dry. Otherwise this was awesome and I'll definitely make it again, and possibly even try it with chicken as well. I used dry Vermouth for the white wine. I served i"
