This definitely has some different flavors in it. I'm not a big fan of green olives (which I had read as green onions) stupid me. Anyway DH loves them so I just picked them out of my serving. Did have some problems with the ingredient list and the directions. Have z-mailed mariposa13. I did make it using chicken breast. Served it with steamed broccoli and recipe #38360. Thanks for posting.
