This is really tasty! I used chicken breasts (4) and cooked it for about the same time as indicated in the recipe. Next time I will add the whole jar of peppers and olives and not bother measuring them out. They're delishious! Read More

I do not like bland food but this recipe has too many flavors competing. The flavors of the cooked olives and peppers were not harmonious. The sauce was alright but still had an acidic taste. Also I had to add more liquid to keep my chicken from drying out. Read More

This was excellent. I cooked this on high for 3 hours and it turned out perfect. Next time I will need to remember to pinch of the stems from the peppers-they started falling off in the cooking process. Read More

I was a bit disappointed in this recipe; it sounded so good but just didn't quite fit the bill. The pepperoncinis overpowered the chicken and I've made recipes that used far more than this. If I do make it again I will cut way back on the pepperoncinis maybe at least half and I may add some chunks of carrots to it for some sweetness. I think this could be awesome with some tweaking.

wow - this one packs a lot of heat. My hubby loved it! I didn't count the pepperoncinis or the olives - just added them to the bottom of a casserole dish - added 3 chicken thighs(deboned and skinned) on top and poured the rest of the ingredients over all - covered and baked 350 for 30 minutes. Now not sure what to do with the left overs on this one... Read More

This was awesome!! I though the flavor was perfect and it had a "kick" to it from the pepperoncini. It deserves 5 stars because I didn't have to do anything different to tweak it it was easy to prepare and delish! This one is a keeper. Read More
