    It was good but wasn't worth the effort.

    I loved this. I thought the complexity of flavors made it outstanding. I did half the recipe, only used 4 thighs. Used dried tarragon and only used about 1 tsp. Did not broil tomatoes, just cut them in half and threw them in last, right before serving. I forgot the bacon so that would make it even better I assume. It was the sauce that made the dish. Intense flavor but yet light. Will make it for company next time. It does smell wonderful.

    Really work intensive, but really delicious! I halved the recipe and only used the chicken breast since I was only cooking for two, and it cooked perfectly in 30 minutes in the oven. My only regret is that it's so prep heavy, because otherwise I would make this all the time. One of the best CL recipes I've attempted.

    Delicious. Yes, there is a bit of time in chopping the veggies and the various steps, so probably not a week night meal. I made it on a Sunday and the family all commented on the wonderful smells coming from the kitchen! Following other's comments I added more carrots, browned the chicken in a bit of bacon drippings, used all thighs and served with mashed potatoes.

    This was soooo tasty. Loved the sauce, everything about it. Like the bone-in chicken....gives more flavor.

    Excellent! I cooked the bacon in the Dutch oven first, and used a bit of the bacon drippings in place of some of the canola oil. Also increased the amount of carrots. Very tasty! The cherry toms add just the right amount of sweetness. Boneless chicken would be more convenient - I will try that next time.

    A lot of great flavors going on in this recipe! I used all chicken thighs. I used 1/2 the amount of dried tarragon in place of fresh. I also omitted the bacon so I upped the salt a little. I would love to make this more often but the prep is very time consuming.

    I think I was expecting more with this recipe; while it wasn't, bad, it just didn't knock my socks off.

    Just ok. A lot of prep for a dish that wasn't very good. The dish is edible, but too many different flavors that don't work well together. Will not make again.

    Love, love, love this recipe. The flavor was so amazing! Can't wait to make it again!

    This was pretty good- we especially liked the sauce. However if I'm going to put in the amount of time, effort, and dirty dishes it took to make this, I expect something really fabulous, and I'm not sure this delivers.

    This was pretty time consuming and although it wasn't horrible, we were able to eat it, the flavors did not go well together at all, the tomatoes didn't make sense. I served it on top of thin spaghetti noodles because I don't know what else you would do with all that sauce.

    An excellent dish! We loved what the tomatoes did to the taste! I might add a little spinach or some kind of green to up the veggie content, but it was great as is. We don't use a lot of overly processed foods so used olive oil. I'm not sure why they called for canola oil anyway.

    Good recipe, but definitely time consuming. I cut down on prep time by buying shredded carrots and cut up celery from the grocery store salad bar. Think next time I'd only use chix thighs and leave out the chix breasts - they just don't cook at the same rate and make the recipe take longer. I liked the flavor combination, and I added some caramelized onions at the end also.

    Great recipe, even our 4 year old loved it! We used boneless skinless thighs and breasts, and it turned out fine. Easy perpetration with simple ingredients.

    Lots of different flavors melded together to make a wonderful sauce and full flavored chicken. This dish is a winner! There are many of layers of flavor from the fresh tarragon, parsley, carrots, onions and celery which flavor the wine sauce. I didn't need to make enhancements to this recipe...the timing was perfect and my chicken cooked to a wonderful texture in my dutch oven. The final toppings of crumbled apple-wood smoked bacon and broiled cherry tomatoes added a nice and tasty finish. The prep time is not too long, but there's a lot of chopping and then the final finishing up of the sauce at the end...this recipe goes into my Sunday Dinner category. I would definitely make again.

    My family loved the flavors (didn't add bacon). Recipe is good for a time when you are not hurried for dinner.
