  1. Will definitely be making this next week! Thanks Flavia!

  2. Ashley says:

    Are you adding the chicken at the end?

    • Anna G says:

      You could add the chicken at the end or when you add the tomatoes and stock.

    • Flavia says:

      Correct, you can do either but it has to be cooked chicken that you add. That’s why grabbing an already roasted chicken is great and has a ton of flavor.

  3. Sandra says:

    Grapeseed oil has the higher smoke point, so that might be healthier to use than the olive oil. Oftentimes we will just add the extra virgin olive oil at the very end for flavoring, like for making tomato sauce.
