This is my take on a Chicken Madeira! I added Carats (carrots) as well, which simply reminded me of mined gems. Silly, but that's how the mind works when creative cooking! I so enjoy watching the expression on my hubby's face as he indulges. The taste is a surprise with each bite because of the Madeira Wine. "To Your Blessed Health and Beauty"! Janie
