This was absolutely delicious. The only thing I added was extra kalamata olives because I'm an olive fiend. Everyone was a fan, and the chicken came apart as I stirred in the lemon rind. Crazy good. This recipe will be my go-to recipe for gatherings. I wasn't a slave to the kitchen for once! I could actually interact with my guests before dinner! Yay!

This is incredibly good! I ended up finishing it in the oven, due to a bad electrical outlet. The chicken was moist, and the flavors were delicious. My husband declared it his new all-time favorite.

Cant go wrong with olives and capers! Maybe add artichokes for a special "fancy" occasion. Served with green beans on the side. Quick and esay.

Good and yummy, for me I used a 6 ounce can of cured green olives, as I didn't have capers that day. We like olives so a whole bunch was great.

This was delicious. I added 2 cans of tomatoes. Since I used breasts, I wanted everything to be covered. I have a 'multi-cooker', so I could brown in the slow cooker pan - I lightly dredged my chicken in flour (seasoned with salt, pepper, oregano). I think that added some thickness to the sauce. Also added garlic, oregano and extra olives. Cooked on low for 6 hours. 15 minutes before the end, I sprinkled feta cheese on the top. The feta was warmed by the time I served and it added a nice tartness. It definitely tasted Mediterranean. Will add to the rotation.

I felt I needed more tomato to cover the chicken so I added another 3/4 can of tomatoes. I added more lemon juice, added salt, pepper, and garlic powder at the end. Thought a little tomato paste would have made a nicer consistency sauce. Mine was a little watery but I did add the extra tomatoes. My picky spouse said it had a lot of flavor. Next time I will add some wine red wine and a bit of tomato paste. Very good base recipe just need tweaking. Very good reheated from frozen...( single portion )

This recipe was very flavorful despite not using the herbs. I also used thighs without the bones which reduced the cooking time. We ate it with mashed Parmesan cauliflower.

Was really excited about this recipe and was so disappointed. Not lots of flavor and taste was just yuck.

This dish is sure to make a repeat appearance on my table. It is absolutely delicious! I served it with couscous and roasted cauliflower, which were both complementary to the dish. Based on other reviews, I trimmed the fat and seasoned the thighs with salt & pepper and marinated them in the fridge for 4-5 hours hours before cooking to infuse flavor. I add 1/3 c. tomato paste, 3 pressed garlic cloves, 2 tsp. Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper to the liquid. It turned out just perfect!

Easy and very very good. One of my favorites. I add some extra olives, because they're just so yummy, and serve over coos-coos

I have made this multiple times during the past year. Delicious and easy. I served it with mashed potatoes and vegetable side dishes. There's often too much liquid, so drain tomatoes thoroughly. Even with that, I strain a lot of excess liquid off. This may just be an issue with my slow cooker, because almost every recipe I use has too much liquid. Chicken breasts work well instead of thighs.
