Recipe by TasteTester

This dish is somewhat reminiscent of a Mediterranean chicken dinner I had at a restaurant once. Very delicious, easy to make, and enjoyed by our family.

Well I printed this recipe to make chicken, but it being Easter, I had a load of lamb and I wanted to eat lamb. There aren't many decent recipes, but this fell off the pile and I thought it would be delicious for lamb AND so it was!! This chicken recipe is now pasted in my personal cookbook under LAMB. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
