I cannot get enough of this chicken. I made it for my mom's birthday dinner and we had alot of other food, therefore lots of leftovers. But, I cannot stop eating the chicken!! It's delicious and very juicy. I omitted the olives, used dried herbs and made extra of the marinade. Thank you so much!
This was such a great and easy recipe!! The chicken came out so tender and tasty, and the kalamata olives were a great touch. It's just the 2 of us, but we made the 6 servings so we could have plenty of leftovers!! (PS: This went great with steamed broccoli!)
