May 30, 2014 on

Totally delicious! I made it with chicken thighs because we prefer dark meat, and that was great...I also doubled the apple/sweet potato to get more veggies in. Next time, to save time, I might just do all veggies. But the flavor was delicious, boyfriend couldn't get enough. Definitely recommend!

We just moved to the Seattle area, picked about 6 pounds of blueberries, and needed something to do with them. I thought this was fantastic! My boyfriend did too - we didn't have ice cream (which would have been the cherry on top), but it didn't need it.

Delicious! I left out the almonds, and made them in my toaster oven (it only goes to 450, so took longer - maybe about 15m). They were wonderful! My boyfriend told me I'd set a new bar."

I made this last night for dinner, and my boyfriend and I absolutely loved it! We added kalamata olives and artichoke hearts along with the capers, and instead of using the sauce as a topping, we stirred cooked angel hair pasta into it, then put the coated pasta on the plates, with chicken on top. No quality delicious."
