This is similar to a family favorite we have loved for long time. It's a great "go to" when you want something quick and delicious for dinner. I skipped dipping the chicken in flour and left out the olives. In place of parsley I used thyme and tarragon and added extra garlic. I used a Semilon Chardonnay for the wine. I cut the chicken ino smaller pieces and served this over fettuccini. Reviewed for ZWT3Reply
