Thank you very much for the fantastic recipe. It is unbelievably easy. I added mushrooms and carrots. Both my children love it a lot. It is definitely a dish I can proudly serve to guests.

A very tasty dish that my DH enjoy it much. I put it in a warm oven to keep it warm for 15-20 minutes while I am dealing with the stir-fry beans. It seems the slow cooking helps to favour the chicken even more while keeping it tender and juicy. Thank Littleturtle for sharing.

Terrific recipe! I loved this dish. Tasted great served with grilled potatoes, a mixed greens salad, and a baguette. I browned up some chicken leg quarters because that's what I had on hand, and I added a 12-oz package of sliced mushrooms into the mix. Reminds me a bit of coq au vin but easier, and the Spanish olives add a great salty note to a very tasty dish. Thanks!
