"This recipe was VERY easy to make. I have two suggestions. 1. cook the chicken in garlic and olive oil first. 2. Add feta to the top once you plate the dish."

"Made this recipe for dinner and people seemed to enjoy it...that or they are good liars. Either way, I found this recipe rather tasty and it satisfies well enough. I would cut down on the Black Olives as they tend to overpower things. I would add some sunflower seeds as well, add some crunch to it. I imagine this dish goes well with some moderately sweet red wine. Cheers all!"
