"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." — Peter Alfieri

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 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.
