You could just leave it out if you prefer Kate, no need to replace it with extra stock 🙂

Could you use chicken stock instead of wine?

It was delicious. I used black olives instead of green because that’s all I had. Even my son, who doesn’t like olives or mushrooms, came back for seconds. Thanks for a great recipe.

Made this last night. I only had red wine, but I don’t think it made much difference. It was so delicious. Another one to add to my favourites list.
