"We love this recipe! I double the amount of tomatoes, use two full cans of black olives, and a whole 3.5 oz jar of capers (about 4 Tbs) since we the veggies and chicken breasts have gotten so large. I have finished the recipe covered on the stovetop or in the oven and both ways come out great. I do tend to add the tomatoes later so they don't overcook, especially if the chicken is thick."

"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"

"This dish presents beautifully and tastes delicious! I would wait a little longer to add the tomatoes, mine were a tad overdone.:-)"
