"Mmmm, really good and easy. Love that! I used two breasts but kept the other ingredient amounts the same. I just covered it and cooked it on the stove. So good. Next time I won't add salt though as the olives and capers have enough."

"This was amazing. Everyone loved it from the first forkful. I did cut the chicken breasts in half because my family has smaller appetites. The next night I took the leftovers, diced everything finely, added a few more chopped tomatoes, a chopped green pepper, some minced parsley and a little mAyo to make a Mediterranean chicken salad. It got rave reviews too"
