This is from an chicken cookbook that my Mom had and I've used forever. This is really good!

This is really 4 star with a bullet! The only thing we thought it needed was a little more heat.1/4 tsp chili powder just doesn't do it for us. I did have to make a substitution. Used garlic stuffed olives, as I don't particularly like pimento. Did not use the raisins, as my sister does not care for fruited main courses. Served over brown rice. Came together fairly quick. A really fine recipe for one of those "I took chicken out of the freezer, now what do I make" nights. Thnx for posting, Jim. Made for ZWT5
