This came together so quickly with the ingredients being common pantry items. We just returned from our holiday and this was such a quick dinner to get on the table. I left out the capers as DD does not like then and threw my olives in whole, pits and all !! Also added fresh chives from the garden. Great flavour, great success. Made for Holiday Tag.
Fantastic!!!! This has wonderful depth of flavor with the capers, oregano and other flavors melding into one heck of an easy and delicious dish!! I used chicken thighs and a few breast tenders instead of all breast meat and I used canned fire-roasted tomatoes. The 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes was just right on the heat, very subtle and great!!! I added more sliced black olives, a whole cup, instead of the 1/3 cup since I love them and I knew that 1/3 cup wouldn't be enough. I forgot the parsley because we were so hungry but the colors of the capers and olives looked so pretty that I don't think it really missed the parsley. I will definitely make this again and I can see experimenting with all types of olives to really bring out some interesting flavors!! Thank you for this great recipe!!
