This is my first review and the only reason I'm doing so now is because this recipe was not rated and I want more people to try it. I had not heard of this before, and when I told my husband I was making this dish with the funny sounding name, his eyes lit up and said he'd always wanted to try it, has several recipes of his own, but hasn't made it. Needless to say it was a hit. The flavors blended perfectly and was a snap to put together. The only change I made was to saute the mushrooms in some butter before adding to chicken. Served with Sesame Asparagus from this site, and my husband said it was restaurant quality. Evidently, Harry Carey's restaurant in Chicago is known for this recipe. Pls try it.

Ok let me start by saying I am [not] trying to be rude, but I was looking for a chicken vesuvio recipe and I found this one. I live in Chicago and I never had chicken vesuvio with mushrooms and black olives and green onion usually it is either bone in or chicken breast. I have never had it at Harry Caray’s though. Chicken is usually in white wine and herb sauce with potatoes. I am just not sure of the exact herbs. Chicken Cacciatore has mushrooms and black olives in it. Sorry I hope you take no offense.

Wow, this was amazing. I only had dried rosemary, regular white potatoes, and merlot; put in a lasagna pan so everything could spread out better. I didn't change anything else, and look forward to trying it exactly as written. I kept predicting that the potatoes weren't going to be done along with the chicken, but it was perfect, almost a Greek/Italian/middle east medley. Thank you so much!

Made this today because we love all the flavors involved. Cut recipe in half for 2 of us but had to make a lot of modification. I knew that 1 hr. would far too long for boneless chicken breasts. Cut potatoes in 1/8ths, browned the chicken lightly on each side, and baked for approx. 20 mins. before adding sauteed mushrooms. Bake another 20 mins. and even then the chicken was a little dry. The flavors are wonderful and I added more garlic (we also love rosemary). I normally do not rate a recipe that I have had to alter so much, but perhaps it will help others who have run into some of the same problems. Will make it again, but with more modifications. Certainly will not change seasonings.

This was awesome! Used boneless chicken thighs, Kalamata olives and a liitle more garlic. Great flavor!

This recipe was amazing! I added a lot of extra garlic, and I had to bake for about an extra 10 to 20 minutes for the chicken and potatos to be just right. It was DELICIOUS! After 30 minutes, I drizzled a bit more olive oil on the potatos. One of the best, if not THE best recipe out of the 6+ i've made on here.

My family liked this recipe. I used regular yellow onions and didn't use rosemary. I added more garlic and doubled the amount of gravy next time. I needed to add 1/4 cup of chicken broth toward the end of baking because the gravy was baking away. Next time I will try making it with 1 tsp of dried rosemary. I baked it at 375 degrees for 45 - 60 minutes, basting every 10 minutes.

We all liked this and thought it had alot of flavor. I like rosemary but I thought 2 tsps would be too much so I only added one. Wouldn't change anything else though.
