    ms_bold's Note:

    I adopted this recipe. For my trial run of the recipe, I prepared the chicken using the roasting method in Mermaid's Tender Roast Chicken. It was an incredibly moist and flavorful bird. The Tomato-Olive sauce is bright with fresh flavors and the perfect salty compliment. This is simple and fabulous. The recipe can be done with grilled breasts or thighs as well. Recipe from Patricia Wells.

      Patricia Wells via Mean Chef - spells outstanding recipe. This tastes like something out of her best book, Bistro Cooking (a cookbook lent to a wowed dinner guest who never returned it)...prepared as directed w/o bothering with the thermometer - 80 minutes @ 400 degrees F made a crispy skinned tender chicken - seasalt & freshly ground black pepper the only embellishments. Made the olive-tomato sauce with a 28 ounce can of tomato strips with basil & fresh rosemary - otherwise as directed & wow! This was great! Served with steamed rice - fantastic meal to be on our regular rotation. Thanks for saving this one, Ms. Bold!
