This was great! My whole family loved it and I made my friend try it and she cant wait to write a review too. The only thing I did different was I used canned chicken breast from costco and sprinkled in the salt pepper and basil, so I was able to eliminate the water. Again I say - This is great!
I followed other reviewers and used Greek yogurt and already cooked meat. I also used more olives (kalamata) and red pepper (fresh though, since that is what DH prefers). The flavors are great in this, I think the olives and Greek yogurt really make it.
This is such a tasty, easy recipe! I used capsicum (red bell pepper) instead of olives to cater to picky kids and also added some fresh basil. We loved it and will use it again. Thanks for sharing!
