This recipe was billed as "An absolute "have to try" dish right from the villages of Rhodes". This recipe was posted by Suise Atsaides, who has a wonderful website on the island of Rhodes, Greece. This recipe was posted for the Zaar World Tour 2006. I have not prepared this recipe yet and the prep and cook time are best guesstimate based on the recipe instructions.

This recipe was really good. Easy to make, fantastic flavor. I should have read the other reviewers' comments first, as mine did come out very oily. You could easily reduce the olive oil to 1/2 cup as evelyn/athens suggested. We followed all directions and ingredients as posted and topped with fresh parm. Thanks, Kim!
Really nice recipe. I decreased the amount of olive oil to about 1 T, added an extra clove of garlic, and some chopped green pepper (just personal preferences). I also added 1 T of tomato paste to help thicken the sauce up a bit towards the end of the simmering. The chicken was so tender and juicy and the sauce was lovely over some multigrain pasta. Thanks for a lovely and tasty dish!
AUSSIE/NZ Swap May2008- FANTASTIC! I did add an additional clove of garlic as I love garlic. This reminds me of YiaYia's. Not quite the same but so similar it is going into my cookbook! LOVE IT!
