I just made this dish and it's delicious. I've been try7ing to stick with a rule that I cant start one recipe until I use the ingredients from a previous recipe I was planning on making. I used what I had: 1.75 lbs of oraganic chicken tenderlions, fresh thyme, heavy on the shallots, used about 1.5 cups of pinio grigio. I sprinkled some Aleppo pepper for the second bite. Plan on serving it over a wild mix rice blend and serve the extra sauce on the side for dinner with the girls tonight. Thnaks to you & Jenny for the inspiration.
