Another recipe that I cut in half to serve the 2 of us, & although we're usually chicken breast addicts, I did use thighs this time & followed the ingredients right on down, although I did use lemon pepper instead of the usual S&P (one of my usual substitutions)! Definitely a different kind of chicken dish then we often have, & satisfyingly tasty in its own right! I particularly liked the inclusion of the Spanish olives in this one! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

This is a very tasty recipe which is pretty simple. It's pretty much sausage and peppers with chicken instead. I made just a few changes: I thawed 2 each of boneless skinless chicken breasts and thighs. I seasoned the chicken with a little homemade dry Italian seasoning mix (find the copycat recipe of Good Seasons mix is here: http://www.food.com/recipe/italian-dressing-seasoning-dry-mix-63812 ), omitted the olives (I don't like them), and seasoned the dish with the Italian Dressing mix, a bit of salt and pepper. It was perfect over steamed white rice! This is definitely a keeper for those nights you're not in the mood to spend a lot of time on dinner. Keep this recipe in your back pocket!

Very good recipe. This is an easy meal that you do not have to watch too closely; it practically cooks itself!

Forgot I had made this before -- and did it again !! Started early afternoon and let the chicken and veggies simmer for almost 2 hours. Fell right off the bone ! Served over rice with roasted broccoli -- and have leftovers for another meal ! Love it that way ! Thanks, Kate, for a great repeater !

Had skin on/bone in thighs -- which I think are more flavorful, and already made stewed tomatoes from the garden. Pretty much followed the recipe, but let it simmer 90 minutes. Did use lemon pepper, as Sydney Mike suggested, and herbal salt. have more chicken for another night and some tasty sauce to serve with pasta. Thanks for posting, KateL.
