    LI-Ray's Note:

    I found this recipe in my local newspaper. It is a big hit when I am having company. I usually broil it for a few minutes to brown after cooking. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I do.

      Fantastic! This was so tasty and delicious, Even my picky eaters enjoyed this. Didn't change anything in the recipe. Thank-you so much for posting this. The onions were so soft, it was a culinary explosion on my taste buds.

      Very nice way to serve chicken. Made exactly as stated except I didn't have any black olives! Served over rice. Will do again.
