      This is an easy recipe all in one pan! I pounded the chicken breasts first so it cut the cooking time by about ten minutes, and I used about half the amount of olives. Very tasty meal which we had with plain basmati rice and green beans. Thanks for posting.

      What a tremendous dish! I made this last night for a small dinner party and everyone raved! The taste of the cinnamon comes through so nicely! I added a touch of oregano, almost a tspn of cayenne, and a tad more Olive Oil...I served it with a spinach, feta, and mushroom orzo that I made... absolutely fabulous. Thanks so much for this great recipe!

      This is more because of my personal taste, but the cinnamon did not mix well with the dish. It was a very savory dish and I am obviously in the minority in a three-star rating. The only deviation I used was a stainless steel pan and I deglazed the chicken with a bit of white wine. Very nice.
