    Sue Lau's Note:

    This is one of my husbands more favorite things to cook. The green olives are a nice touch. But you could use ripe olives if you prefer. I like this with pasta and garlic bread, but if you're reducing carbs, you can serve without.

      I liked the fact that this recipe used the crock pot. It smelled good all day. I made a few changes. I used 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts and omitted the celery (personal preference). I also tasted the sauce before serving and added 1 tsp. sugar and 1/2 tsp. salt to give it a little more depth. Thank you for posting this.

      I skinned a fryer and cut it up - I found that 5 hours was long enough on low then turned it to keep warm for 2 hours No problem - it was moist, fall off the bone. Lovely flavor Thanks Sue. I served it with Homemade Gnocchi - the sauce was lovely with them, I left out the olives (didn't have any) and added 1 tsp chili flakes . Lobely dinner

      The sauce was absolutely yummy! I did not have to thicken the sauce with the flour ~ it was plenty thick after cooking. I only had to cook this for 6 hours, but there are probably variations with individual crock pots. Best to check for doneness at the shortest time. Since we aren't fond of olives, so I just left them out and I also used canned mushrooms. This is a keeper and I will definitely make it again!
