I just finished eating this and I am very impressed! My picky husband also loved it! He described it as tasting like a supreme pizza. Cooking light did not let me down!

I made this tonight, with a few variations, nothing major.  I do not have a grill pan and since it was raining out I was not going to use the grill.  I cooked the chicken in half of the olive oil, in my electric skillet, when it was cooked on both sides I removed it and then added the ingredients as directed. I used pink Himalayan salt instead of kosher salt (better for you), I used fresh garlic and I used a seasoning blend of diced onions, red & green peppers.  I get a big bag of it from Sam's Club.  I doubled the tomato.  I did not have fresh parsley so I used 2 tsps of crushed parsley.  I also doubled the lemon juice.  I then returned the chicken to the skillet, covered it and let it simmer with all the ingredients for about 20 minutes.  The chicken came out nice and juicy.  I really enjoyed the flavors.  My older son said it was ok, he is not a fan of olives, so next time I will probably leave them out.  My younger son liked it.  I served it with wild rice and green beans.

Good recipe, quick and easy to prepare.  I grilled the breasts (sprinkled with oregano too) on our Traeger grill while preparing the rest of the meal.  We both agreed that next time there will be a bit less onion and a bit more tomato.  We served this with roasted garlic couscous and steamed broccoli.  A great meal on a busy work night.  Will make again.

Loved this recipe. Added 1 tbs capers and 1 tbs balsamic vinegar and it was wonderful. Even my husband who thinks he doesn't like olives and capers loved it. Will definitely make again!

My husband and I are big fans of greek cuisine. This recipe is delicious and have added to our regular house menu. The only change I made was substituting a can of black olives for the kalamata olives...I like them but the hubby doesn't. if you do like the kalamata olives there is a band that comes in a glass jar that is great...Mezzetta is the name.

I have made this recipe twice already for guests. For some reason the kalamata olives have an aftertaste that I don't like too much, like some kind of over ripen fruit. But maybe is the brand I used? Or is the olive supposed to be that way? I think next time I'll try black olives, or another brand of kalamata. I think this is a very good recipe, and the potatoes are outstanding! A keeper for our family.

This was a decent recipe. I probably won't make again, but I was glad to have made it once. The flavors were good. I roasted the potatoes too, really good!

This was very good. I will make it again and reduce the time cooked for the chicken. I am always afraid of undercooking chicken. The tomato mixture was delish. Very quick preparation.
