This came together so quickly with the ingredients being common pantry items. We just returned from our holiday and this was such a quick dinner to get on the table. I left out the capers as DD does not like then and threw my olives in whole, pits and all !! Also added fresh chives from the garden. Great flavour, great success. Made for Holiday Tag.
We loved this. The tart taste of the capers added a lot to the overall flavor of this dish. I cut the recipe in half and used chicken tenderloins. I served it over some fettuccine. This is a quick and easy recipe to make. It's full of flavor and looks great plated. Thanks for posting. :)
This is a great, easy to prepare recipe. Mediterranean taste with the capers, olives and tomato. I'm always looking for new ways to prepare chicken and will make this classic dish again.
