This is my tinkering variation on a recipe from Nick Stellinos Glorious Italian Cooking. I have cooked this and given the recipe out so many times. I serve it with rice or roast potatoes and green vegetables. If you taste the Mixture before the chicken goes in it tastes very strong, but go with it, it becomes more mellow as it sits. Fills your house with a fabulous perfume as it cooks. There are a lot of ingredients, but it the main work is done the day before, so good for giving friends for dinner. Enjoy!
