delicious and simple

I love this recipe though I make it with balsamic vinegar instead of red wine and I add at least half a cup each of olives with pimentos and prunes.

few ingredients, easy and fast to make

Simple and delicious

I tried to follow this recipe to a "T," which I don't often do. In this case, I didn't measure the olives or prunes and probably used more than a quarter cup of each. I also had jarred salad olives on hand so i didn't use the type recommended in the recipe. Mom and I loved the results. The resulting broth was quite tasty and we needed something to soak it up. I think this chicken would be good served over pasta or rice. Next time, I will thicken the juice with a little arrowroot or cornstarch.

Simple, few ingredients needed, unusual twist on a chicken recipe

I made this last night for dinner served over orzo. I added double the olives and prunes. My family all found it quite delicious but my 25yr old son thought I should have added more prunes.

I added a ton of thyme and lemon and still super bland. Tried to fix it the next day with a ton of garlic and black pepper. Still bland. The prunes don't mix well with the olives even though I'm a fan of the salty sweet combo. Wouldn't make it again.
