READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

All ingredients are just estimated, I really just throw this together without even measuring anything, it is a really tasty dish, I have even made this using skin-on chicken legs it is still wonderful, just make the same as directed only bake a bit longer, if you are an olive-lover then you will love this! :)

Really excellent recipe!! I added a touch of Italian season to the flour mixture and played around a little with the quantities of the ingredients (as the author said, it seemed to be more of an estimate she used), and WOW was it great. I will try it with fresh mushrooms next time, and I bet it'll be even better. I covered my baking dish with foil, and the chicken came out nice and juicy. Would definitely make for company (who love olives!).
