"If you love pickles you will love this. Chicken thighs are browned and cooked with potatoes, carrots, pickles and black olives. Sounds scary I know but trust me it's good. My mother-in-law served this to me when I first met my husband and I have come to love it." — Kristie

This was fun and unusual for sure. The carrots soaked in dill juice were good by themselves but I thought they were out of place with the rest of the dish. I'm a huge dill pickle and olive lover but even this was a bit much overall dill flavor for me. I honestly think this would be better if chicken breast were used instead and slightly blackened on the grill, sliced, and put in the dish in the end instead of browning them just to soggy them up with the liquid but that is just my two cents. Again, this was fun and it wasn't horrible but just something I probably wouldn't make again.
My family renamed this "Weird Chicken". It was bland, strange combination of flavors, and I won't make it again.
weird, but dang good!
