    Little Bee's Note:

    Found this one on the internet so its not my Grandpa's recipe! :) It was listed as one of the top 100's. The author said her grandfather was a chef and owned a restaurant in Long Island during the Depression. This was a dish he created. I have not tried it yet but I was attracted to the fact that is is not loaded with green peppers (yuk) and has all of the Mediteranian flavors I so love (especially the Kalamata olives!) This is a piquant version of an Italian favorite. Tell me what you think.

    6. 6
      Add chopped garlic and fresh oregano; stir and saute two additional minutes, being sure not to burn garlic.
    7. 7
      Add white wine and cook a minute or two to deglaze pan before adding the chicken broth and pepperoncini juice.
    8. 8
      Cook a minute or two, stirring to combine liquids and get to a simmer.
    9. 9
      Return chicken to pan and add pepperoncini peppers.
