Recipe by Peter Alfieri
"I came up with this recipe because chicken breast by itself is rather bland in flavor. After several attempts, I finally came up with this full-flavored yet easy to make grilled chicken. It combines sophisticated Italian elements while being a simple indoor/outdoor grilling dish."

pitted black olives
brined capers, drained
roughly chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
dried crushed red pepper
ground black pepper
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Yum! Man this recipe is good . . . and I think it could be even better if you marinade the chicken first in Italian dressing.
Recipes was ok but I thought it was quite bland., it needs something else!
I went by the recipe but tucked this mixture under the skin of chicken thighs. A very nice change to boring thighs! Next time I may try pimento stuffed green olives (I'm an olive freek-must be the salt)!! YUM
This recipe was very good and very easy to prepare. A great twist on tired old chicken. Cooking the chicken breasts on the grill added a great smokey flavor to the olive puree.
I thought this was tasty. I made it exactly as written except I did not use the grill...it is cold and rainy in AZ today. I pan fried it in olive oil and it worked fine. The only thing I would change next time it to lesson the parsley, lesson the garlic to one clove and maybe add cheese. I was amazed both my kids ate it with no questions except my daughter did say "don't tell me what's in it" ha ha!! Good overall chicken recipe. Thanks!
I do not like black olives, so I used kalamata olives!!! YUMMY!!!! I also added lemon juice to the puree, just for a splash of acid.
This is definitely not a keeper, though I had high hopes. It wasn't bad and it was definitely moist, but given the ingredients that went IN to this dish it's kind of astonishing how little flavor came OUT of it- aside from the flavor of the grill. Not bad, but definitely not worth the ingredients as none of their flavors truly come through.
This was a huge hit. I'm not a huge fan of olives, but even I liked this dish. I baked it instead of grilling. Delicious.
