I loved this recipe particularly because I love ripe olives. Made the recipe as noted but cooked the chicken for more than 5 minutes since my breasts were very thick. One pan dinners - got to love 'em.

Love, love, love this recipe. It is easy to make and tastes great. My family loves olives so this is a huge hit...I add extra olives! I always cook the chicken a little longer.

I'm a bit torn on reviewing since I improvised some, however I really liked the way it came out so I'd like to make the suggestion :) Instead of cream of chicken I used cream of mushroom & instead of milk I used some left over cream I had on hand. I used 2-3 times the lemon and threw in a clove a garlic. It was a hit with my husband and kids! Will make again!

This was OK for the most part. My family liked the sause more than they liked the chicken. Next time I make my dish, I will slice the chicken into chicken stripes. My husband especially liked the sause and he never likes most anything I make.

My whole family LOVED this. I was looking forward to the leftovers but we all had seconds and there isn't anything left! That's a lot to say with my picky eaters.

This was ok. I think it would have been better without the milk.

Very good, my family loved it. I tripled the recipe because I have a BIG EATIN FAMILY!!! I used one 10.75oz can of cream of chicken soup (all I had) and 2 cans 10.75oz of cream of mushroom soup. Added lots of fresh garlic, about 8 oz of fresh sliced mushrooms and added lots of spices because thats how we roll! I used Oregano, Basil, and a little red pepper to chicken prior to browning. I served this dish with Angel Hair pasta and a side of fresh asparagus. DELISH!!!!! I grilled my asparagus with a little olive oil and some Parmesean. The sauce tasted AMAZING with the asparagus as well so we mixed everything together. REALLY GOOD!!! Thank you much for the recipe!! OH and I cooked the chicken in sauce much longer because I had some very thick chicken breasts! YUM!!
