I was nervous about this one because there are a few "not worth it" comments and I'm no cook, so if something's a little difficult, I could easily destroy it. I DID almost destroy my iron/enamel pan because while browning the chicken, the pan just burned, burned, burned. So I finished browning and transferred to a nonstick pan and everything was fine. It's a good amount of work but not difficult at all. I had everything ready to go so when I made it, there was no measuring or anything...just read, pour, stir...read, pour, stir. :) The dish was an absolute hit. Everyone LOVED it. Of course there's NO WAY it's a serving for 8. Definitely four. Everyone immediately went for two. One thigh is nothing! Oh, and definitely top with chopped parsley. I'd love to try it again, with chicken breasts. Enjoy!
