Have had my eye on this recipe for a while. I have to admit that it was very good, but not as amazing and tantalizing as it could have been. I marinated it overnight in the orange juice, wine, and spices. The olives are obviously great. I think next time I will use breasts or thighs and breasts only - the best part of this recipe, is you can use whatever parts of the chicken you like best. It wasn't overpoweringly flavorful though - and I would follow the recommendations of some of the other users and cut down on the oil.
This was very good. I enjoyed the orangey flavor of the marinade and the chicken came out very tender. I would reduce the oil next time, and might also try using different types of olive for variety. The timing is very accurate too - chicken was ready exaclty at the buzz of my timer.
I just made this tonight for my daughter's boyfriends birthday (24). Everyone said it was great . I did put more olives in as we Israelis just LOVE olives and the kids did fish for them . The orange flavour was great too .
