This is my favorite chicken dish. The green olives in this dish really make the flavors soar!

This would have been really good however the rice was not done in 1 hour and I had to keep adding water in order for the rice to cook which took away from the flavor that it was intended to have. I will try this again but start the rice first and wait until the rice is almost done then add all the ingredients. Read More

This was so easy & yummy. I used 1 Tbl of Olive Oil instead of butter chicken broth instead of water & the spicy green olives from the olive bar at the grocery store. It was spicy & yummy. My boyfriend told me we should have this at least once a week! And it took almost no effort and even less if you use frozen choppen onion & green pepper. Read More

this recipe is really wonderful. It gets 5 stars for ease of preparation and another 5 stars for fantastic flavor. I did follow the advice of some other reviewers I used chicken broth instead of water added a couple of cloves of garlic and reduced the salt for 1 tablespoon to 1 teaspoon... Read More

Great-tasting one-dish chicken recipe! I cut way back on the salt (did you REALLY mean 1 tablespoon or is that a typo?) used fresh tomatoes instead of canned & added another half cup of water to help cook the rice. My husband and I both loved it - I will make this again. Read More

This was so easy and so tasty. Used diced tomatoes and broth instead of water. Make sure to push the chicken down in to the rice mixture while cooking so that flavours permeate the meat. A little crushed red pepper would spice it up a little. Read More

This recipe was incredible! I added fresh chopped garlic and instead of water I used chicken broth and white wine. I don't eat rice but partner does so she made rice on the side and I just ate the mixture and the flavor was delicious! Thank you for a wonderful recipe! Read More

ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!! I served it on top of penne pasta (no rice and of course less water then) and it was fabulous! My husband even liked it and he is a plain old red meat and potatoes kind of guy. I will definitely make it again! Read More
