    We liked this- would be a good family dish (at least in my family!). I used fresh cherry tomatoes and a 14 oz can of diced Italian-style tomatoes. It was still a bit watery but not as bad as using the fresh tomatoes (from Jane’s note below).

    I first saw / made an adaptation of this on I make it following Melissa's book and we LOVE this. It produces an awesome cast iron pan of delicious "tomato saucy, cheesey, capery, basily" chicken thighs!

    I liked this though my finished dish looked rather different to the book photo. Like Astrid I found the tomatoes had lost all definition in the sauce - my tomatoes also threw off a lot of liquid so the chicken was sitting in soup (tasted lovely though). This isn't a quick weeknight dinner - start to finish was well over an hour. Though it's a good way to use your tomato harvest - uses 1.5 pounds of large plus a pint of cherry.

    Fun little recipe although it's nothing to stop the presses. Would reduce the anchovies next time.

    I loved the concept of the dish, but the end result was somewhat different to what I was expecting, also from the picture. No way the tomatoes look that nice in reality after the sauce has cooked down for more than 40 minutes. On the other hand the sauce was very good and we all happily had this for Sunday lunch. And this is also when we would have it again, not as a quick weeknight dinner option, too much chopping and waiting going on here for my taste.

    I substituted canned diced tomatoes for fresh tomatoes (I did use fresh cherry tomatoes)
