Greek flavors abound in this tasty and tender chicken dish that's cooked in the slow cooker. Olives, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon juice and balsamic vinegar combine with chicken for a special treat tonight. Radelle Knappenberger - Oviedo, Florida

"I added fresh basil and used the following substitutions--Meyer lemon juice (sweeter than regular lemons), Kalamata olives, thin sliced shallots (for onions) and chicken breast tenders--for this recipe, as that's what I had in the fridge. I thought the chicken was a little dry. I'm not wild about the flavor. It's missing something... If I make this recipe again, I will flash-fry/sear/brown the chicken first in olive oil and perhaps add a little smoked paprika or cayenne pepper."

"I have made this a couple of times now because I do like the overall flavor, however both times, the chicken tenderloins I am using have turned out dry by the time it is served. The taste of the balsamic vinegar in the 'marinade' after a few bites is a bit overwhelming and I love balsamic vinegar. It may be the brand I am using, so this is what I have done to make the taste more palatable, keep the chicken moist and have enough of the marinade to put over a side of rice: Doubled the balsamic and lemon juice, added 1 ounce of water and used just a tad less of the kalamata olives. With a couple of tweaks, this is a dish I really look forward to making!"

"Super easy and delicious. I substituted capers for the sundried tomatoes and it was perfect for my low-carb diet."

"Is that really all the liquid that is required? Also, I have a larger cooker. Any tips on how to use it (adjustments to recipe) for this recipe which sounds so good??"
