    Can kalamata olives be substituted for the green olives?

    I know it would be delicious, but must the chicken be grilled? Can it be baked in the oven?

    DH and I made this for dinner last night and our only complaint was that we ate too much becuase it was so good! Only change I made was used garlic powder instead of roasted garlic in the tapenade as we were short on time. Thank you for posting.

    Great dish to make and serve right off the grill. Flavor was so wonderful.

    Absolutely loved this! We fought over who was getting the left overs for lunch. It was equally as delicious as left overs. I added feta cheese. I may cut the lemon juice down in the veggies the next time.

    Excellent! Perfect summer dish with the easy to grill chicken and the cool topping. I just used lemon pepper on the chicken instead of juice and peel. Very good. Thanks for posting.
