    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    This has real fresh, tangy flavor. If you don't have Greek seasoning on hand, just add a mix of dried organo, onion powder, and garlic powder.

      I loved this, and loved the smell of the olives while the chicken cooked. DS said the lemon was too overpowering, but I didn't find it so. (He ate two chicken breasts though, so it couldn't have been bad. LOL) My chicken breasts were huge, two of them weighed 2 1/2 lbs, so I adjusted the recipe accordingly...Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag game. Thanks for sharing!

      Gotta love that Greek Seasoning. It adds so much flavor to anything you sprinkle it on. We loved this chicken and we can't wait to have it again. I baked potatoes with oil, lemon, Greek Seasoning, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper in the oven and a Greek salad on the side. Great meal!
