    Bonnie, I certainly intend to try this recipe, but in the meanwhile...would you happen to be the daughter of Herbert and Merlyn O'Neill from LA? signed: Sandy Tabor  -  29 Jan 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I did this recipe a little differently. I tossed the chicken cubes in cajon seasoning, then blackened them in a hot (like heating up for about 10 minutes) pan. They cooked quickly because of being cubes so I took them out and put in the veggies to saute a little (10 minutes) before adding the white wine and chicken back in. I left it on med. high to high so it would cook down, then after about 15 minutes added in a little cornstarch I had mixed with water so it would be more saucy. I put the tomatos (only two romas) and parsley in last minute and cooked for another 3 minutes with the lid on. The dish was spicy, full of flavor, and a complete meal when served over rice. It's easy too -gotta love that.  -  14 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My husband and I thought this recipe was nothing to write home about...kind of bland even though we followed the recipe to the letter.  -  24 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
