Yummy! The beans are a strange addition but they worked well. Wouldn't serve over rice or pasta it doesn't need it just with a salad and bread. Did add fresh minced garlic and 2 tablespoons of capers. Top with fresh parm. cheese and you've got a great meal! Read More

Not sure what others rave about. My huband and I found this to be very blah. I even seasoned the chicken first and seared it before baking. I used kalamata olives and added fresh garlic but we still did not enjoy it. Sorry but definately would not make again. Read More

TRY THIS RECIPE! It is fast easy and sooo good! I love this recipe...the only changes I made were to add olive oil salt pepper and garlic powder to the chicken before topping it with olives beans and sauce! Also doesn't need to be served over pasta...quite filling and delish...3 year old ate the chicken (without topping) and husband loved it as well! Read More

I loved this recipe (so did my husband). I even used a cheap can of portabella mushroom spaghetti sauce from Aldi and it was still great. I recommend throwing into the oven at the same time a ramekin of whole garlic cloves and a little olive oil. It roasts the garlic to an almost carmelly taste and goes well with the dish. Also I served it with pasta. Read More

This was exceptional. I used kalamata olives instead of black olives and browned the chicken a bit in olive oil before baking. (i cut out the last 10 minutes so as not to overcook). Very quick and easy. Read More

This recipe was very quick and flavorful. I served it with bowtie pasta flavored with a little olive oil and garlic and it was a hit. The ingredients are different but work well together. Read More

I'm a big fan of no-prep "throw it in a pan and bake it" recipes. I improvised a little by rubbing the chicken breasts with extra virgin olive oil salt and pepper and tossing some garlic cloves into the pan as well. I served this on top of mini penne and it was very very filling. I think the flavor of the dish will depend mostly on the spaghetti sauce you choose. (I used a spicy pepper-flavored sauce and hubby asked that I tone it down next time.) I will probably make this again because it's so easy and the ingredients are minimal and convenient. Thank you RS Thomas! Read More
