I do not recall which home address I provided, but I spend time in NJ home and at Lancaster County, PA home. But, address is not important, since you e-mail me your very welcomed recipes and tips. Regarding this recipe. It's going to be wonderful. I alwasy have a large jar of sun dried tomatoes, which I purchase from BJs or Cosco's bulk shopping stores. I have made something similar to this, but I add a little cream, and grated Iitalian cheese to the sauce and chicken, stir it lightly and it's delightful. This type of dish was served to me in Italy. I love cheese sauces, or white saucer, preferable to regular italian tomatoe sauce we use on pasta. So I made some notes on my frist intro to the very lightly cheesy dish, and now I have this. The meat used in Italy may have been rabbit, which I was unaware is very popular; I would not have eaten it if I knew it was a rabbit. I've had something similar that I made up myself, without meat, only very tender asparagus tips, the sun-drined tomatoes, garlic and my lightly-cheesy white sauce over penne pasta. nevertheless, I will your this recipe, knowing it has ingredients that I always have on hand and love to use. Thanks for this and I will also review your other items attached to this ei-mail. G. Biscardi

Husband and I love this recipe. Very tasty, used it as a hot main dish with vegetable and salad. Only change I made was to use red wine vinegar because I didn't have balsamic.
Simple to prepare, was even better the second day.

This recipe is GREAT! I only marinaded the chicken for 30 minutes and it was delicious. Tonight I'm making it again and I'm going to marinade the chicken for a few hours.
Easy, and delicious. I definitely recommend this recipe!
