My daughter developed this recipe for Eating Well and told me that originally she made it with green peas instead of spinach. I have always made it with the spinach and loved it. I made it yesterday and used peas instead of the spinach and found that I preferred the peas. My husband raved about the change. Both ways are delicious, but I prefer the taste of the peas to the spinach. Either way, this is a yummy recipe.
Sicilian Olive Chicken
From EatingWell: September/October 2011
This saucy one-skillet chicken dish is full of tomatoes, spinach, olives and capers. Try Kalamata olives in place of the green Sicilians or a combination of both. Serve over whole-wheat egg noodles with a mixed green salad on the side.

I'm single, and I love to cook delicious things BUT I hate slaving over meals since I'm the only person who's going to eat it anyway. This was so simple to make, yummy, and easy to store. I only had frozen mustard greens on hand, but it turned out fine. Also, I added a splash of white wine to bring out more flavor.
Very easy to make and good flavor. I served over bow tie pasta.
I used fresh spinach as well. I don't like frozen spinach.
My almost one year old son liked it too.
I will make this again.
Made this tonight. Easy and yummy! Got 5 thumbs up from ages 4-42. Definitely a keeper. Used fresh spinach hand torn after pinching off stems.
Definately a keeper. It was quick, healthy and affordable. The only change I made to the recipe was to use fresh spinach. Flavor was great. Only downside is that the sauce is a little thin. Also tried the "Sicilian Chicken" recipe from this site and would recommend this recipe over that one.
