Another recipe by Barbara Northwood from New Idea. I have not tried this recipe, but am posting it to keep as this is supposed to be great recipe for the freezer, although I think I will be leaving out the olives! Chicken can be prepared up to two days ahead and cooked just prior to serving. Also suggestion from author/chef -- Once chicken dish is cooked, it can be cooled and frozen for up to 2 months. To serve thaw overnight in refrigerator & cover the dish for reheating.
