Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook chicken breasts, turning occasionally and reducing heat when necessary, 5 minutes per side, or until no longer pink in center and juices run clear.
  2. Add thyme, rosemary, garlic, black and green olives, mushrooms, pearl onions, and chicken stock to the skillet. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until chicken is to desired tenderness. Stir in potatoes, peas, and wine. Cover and continue simmering another 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until potatoes are tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve.

First of all - this calls for a pretty big skillet to cook it all in! I liked the recipe and the tases, it was just a little hard to eat. I would use sliced olives next time and use 5 medium potatoes. Using only 3 for 6 chicken breats was not enough. I did not like the cocktail onions, so I ate around them, but I think they gave the dish the nice flavor. I probably would try this again, but not very often.

This recipe was changed just a little by the site. Add a few sprinkles of Accent if you desire it adds lots of flavor...Enjoy.

Fantastic, as the recipe is. modified the second time using french green beans instead of peas and sweet onions instead of pearl, adding bella muschrooms, everyone in the family loved it!

Maybe I did not follow it properly (I never measure precisely!) but this did not work for me
