"Very easy to make and chicken was tender. Flavor was good but was too salty for us and my husband is a salt everything person. I like the flavor though so I think next time, I will skip the salt and the capers. Hubby wants me to try half black olives and half green. I'll see how it comes out."

"This chicken was very tasty, and also e-z to prepare. I didn't use capers, but we loved the olives with the chicken very much! We enjoyed it, and I'll definitely make it again. Thanx Joseph!"
