Reviews for Easy Mediterranean Chicken
"Made this last night. I decreased the rice to 1 1/3 cup and we used crushed tomatoes, but it was great and we're going to make it again."
"This was really easy and delicious . The only thing I changed was I used a can of chicken broth instead of the water. I will definitely make this again"
"Glad I found this. It really hit the spot. I'm trying out the mediterranean diet and this will definitely be a keeper. Thank you for the submission."
"Our whole family loved this dish and it was super easy to prepare."
"I used a can of mixed veggies instead of green beans. It needs a little kick for taste..we just cant put our finger on what yet though, but it was pretty good"
"Loved it. I didn't know what to do and it was time to cook dinner, so I didn't have all the ingredients. I used marinated artichoke hearts instead of the olives and regular white rice instead of instant brown. Did add boullion to the water. Everyone loved it and we decided it would be good with mushrooms and zucchini as a side dish without the chicken. Will try that next time."
"Flavor was excellent. I added 3 green onions...it made it very good!"
"Love this recipe. Very easy to make and everyone enjoyed it! Even the kids.Thanks"

"This recipe was so tasty, quick and easy. I wouldn't change a thing! P.S. If you are a weight watcher, it is 8 points for a piece of chicken and 1 cup of rice."
