3/4 (6 ounce) can
black olives, drained and chopped
homemade bechamel sauce
I made this recipe for my mother on Mothers Day - IT WAS VERT TASTY! I added minced garlic and chopped green onions along with grilling the chicken first. The appearence of the dish was also great - perfect for a dinner party. This recipe will be added to my favorites.
This is good but I think it lacks a spice (red pepper? garlic? More rosemary or thyme?) but I'm not sure what. I'll keep checking the reviews to see what others may recommend but unless I figure out what it lacks, I won't make again. It's not that it wasn't good (even my 5 year old ate her helping) but I felt I had to add extra parmesean cheese to just to add more taste.
I changed this a bit to suit my taste, I added a few strips of bacon with the chicken, added Italian seasoning to the sauce as several other reviews said it needed more taste, garlic, and shrimp. Topped it with parmesan cheese and side of garlic bread! YUMMMM
I found this to be pretty bland, and the bechamel sauce not acting as a good pasta sauce. I think my husband and I would prefer an alfredo or butter sauce instead. I had to add more salt after cooking in order to eat. I'm wondering if marinated artichoke hearts would help give this more flavor OR sundried tomatoes would be tasty.
My husband and kids liked this even though they all dislike mushrooms! Victory! For my bechamel I use 1 cup stock from bullion, 1 cup cold milk + 1 Tbsp cornstarch, 2-3 T grated gruyere cheese. I also added 1 Tbsp lipton onion soup mix instead of salt or grated onion. The other reviews wondered about calories - it's the olives and artichokes, both higher in fats. I agree that bacon would be yummy, but there goes the low-fat option...
I just read the ingredients and i cant understand why is this dish high on calories? 22 grams fat and 70 grams carbs!!! did i miss something? coz i had it before in a restaurant and i can understand that it can be fatty from the white sauce, so i guess it depends on the method a one will take to prepare the homemade beshamel sauce. anyway its a very delicious dish.
Really really good! i made it exactly as authored, but used a different Bechamel Sauce recipe than the one linked beneath the chicken recipe, and i loved the subtlety of the flavor.
