Catch yo Man Chicken.... Flop :(

Ok ladies.... if you're trying to catch a man, I wouldn't recommend this dish! I came up with a new more appropriate title: Make Your Man Run and Hide Chicken! Now, I know what your thinking. I'm married. Why would I need to catch a man??? Since I'm now an old 30 year old I've decided I need to turn cougar and trade my old man in for a younger, rich model. To bad I've lost my strategy with this dish. Maybe I'll try again when I turn 50 :)
I hate saying a recipe's a flop because everyones tastes are different. You just may catch the man of your dreams with this one (Gina Neely did!). Enjoy... or not!

2 tablespoons olive oil
6 skinless chicken thighs
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup white wine
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can crushed tomatoes in puree
1/2-1 teaspoon dried thyme (or herbs de provence)
1/4-1/2 tablespoon dried rosemary (or herbs de provence)
1/2-1 tablespoon lemon-pepper seasoning
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pat chicken dry and season with salt and pepper. Brown the chicken about 4 minutes on each side. Remove chicken and set aside. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of oil from the pan. Add onion to the pan and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Add chicken stock and wine. Stir, scraping any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Turn heat to high and reduce by half, about 3 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes, the dried herbs, lemon pepper, and sugar. Then add the chicken thighs back in . Cover and cook on medium low for 40 minutes for bone-in thighs, 25-30 minutes for boneless. 8 Garnish with fresh chopped parsley.

Yes, we can talk about those dishes, because I have those dishes, too!

I would like to know what was off about it? I have seen them make this on the show and have considered making.

bummer! it's always such a let down when a dish doesn't turn out the way you hoped.

What was the issue? Taste, texture, or something else?

I too have made this chicken for my ex boyfriend... (No he didn't leave me cause of the chicken) but it was a pure FLOP. It tasted like watery tomato sauce with chicken that had NO flavor whatsoever. That recipe nearly turned me off of the Neelys altogether but they got me with their bbq turkey meatloaf...
