Chicken thighs simmered in creamy soups with olives, mushrooms, and white wine. A let-it-cook-all-day dish with wonderful flavor. Serve over hot cooked rice.

Yum! I used bone-in skinless thighs and cut the soup and wine in half - still made a ton. Served with rice and seasoned green beans. Omitted the olive brine as mentioned by other readers; the sauce picked up a nice not too strong taste from the olives. I considered next time removing the chicken and thickening the sauce (was thinner than I anticipated) but hubby said no don't change a thing! I must respond to KRCOOK's nasty review.. first if you are not a fan of canned soup recipes - DON'T TRY THEM. Second ok so it doesn't serve up like a meal in a gourmet restaurant but we are home cooks here generously sharing our family tried and true recipes - not executive chefs.

I have always been very leery of concoctions made with canned soup knowing that if one does not have the ability to create ones own sauce that there must be something wrong with the mix. However I decided to give it a try it sounded so exotic I guess due to the mention of the combination of mushrooms; olives; et cetera. After slow cooking this mixture for 8 hours I can honestly say that I have never been so displeased with a recipe in my lifetime. I was not able to serve it as a main dish not only due to the lack of palatable qualities but due to the fact that it absolutely had no presentation qualities. After spending a lot of money to make this dinner I was at least able to salvage some parts of it by taking the contents adding some shredded cheese and creating quesadillas. It is with heartfelt disappointment that I submit this review.

This is an outstanding recipe. Chicken breasts were used and substituted black olives instead of the green. I omitted the mushrooms and used chardonnay wine instead of the chablis. This is an easy to assemble recipe and most definitly a keeper! Impressive dish for company.

Very good and easy. I would use a 3 oz jar of green olives (drained) rather than the 5 oz. jar to reduce a little of the tartness from the olives. Serve over rice to take advantage of the wonderful sauce. Will definitely make this again!

My husband and I both loved this recipe (and I loved having dinner "in the can" in the morning and not having to think about it again!) Here are my modifications: I removed the skin from the thighs but left the bones in - less fat more flavor. I also used 12 thighs instead of eight (I had a "bonus buy" package) and it worked great - I would do it that way again as it yeilded lots of leftovers and there was plenty of saucy stuff to go around. I also used fewer olives than recommended and none of the olive brine from the jar. I will definitely be making this one over and over again!

I added chopped celery and onion and used cream of mushroom instead of any celery. It was wonderful. Will make again!!

As we are big fans of green olives this recipe caught my attention. This was good the first night we had it but on the second night the leftovers were even better! I also cut the amount of soup in half and still had lots of sauce. A good family meal.

This is one of the best crockpot recipes I've tasted... most of the ingredients are already on-hand. I chopped a medium yellow onion and added about a tbsp. of minced garlic. Also used Pinot Grigio and cooked on low for about 9 hours. Served over brown rice. It really WAS better the next day though!

Great unique flavor. Remember to drain the olive juice before adding as they have a strong flavor.
