Pretty good. I give this a 3 star because as you all seem to know, you have to change it drastically to give it flavor. I too used two jars of sauce and diced tomato. As for the seasoning, I used green peppers, onions, basil, chili powder (lots), Italian seasoning, garlic, chipotle, paprika, and salt to taste. I left the sugar out because I tried using healthy ingredients. No need for sugar.
Very good recipe. I was excited to find this recipe. I live in Hawaii now but just moved from the Rochester area. They do not serve chicken french here. I believe it is a western NY thing though, not just rochester. I ordered chicken french at salvatores in Buffalo NY once and it was the best ever. If you have a chance order from there, you will die on how it melts in your mouth with a burst of flavor. I'm telling you Salvatores beats any Rochester resturant. I have tried everywhere in Rochester to try and get this flavor again but couldn't. Thanks for the recipe.
