      This made a delicious side dish to go with the Mediterranean Chicken Breasts (#351722). I prepared this as written with one exception. I did add about 8 oz. of black olives, cut in half, at the end of cooking time. A nice light side like this will have a regular spot in my meal planning. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
