I served this over rice and had mixed vegetables as a side dish. I omitted the olives and only used chicken thighs and legs. My family loved it. The sauce was yummy. I agree that for a braised dish, this did not take a lot of time.
This was really good. I also used chicken quarters but besides that followed the recipe to a T. Will definitely make again in the fall/winter.
Wonderful recipe. Everyone enjoyed it. For a braised dish, this is very easy and doesn't require a lot of hands on time. I did add a few sprigs of rosemary and thyme and I used manzanilla olives instead of kalamata because that's all I had. Yum. I'll be making this again soon.
This was really great! The sauce was just wonderful, the flavors are rich with a lot of depth. I used chicken quarters instead of drumsticks and thighs separated, and instead of bringing the chicken to a boil then simmering with the sauce, I just allowed it to simmer for about an hour, where it almost fell off the bone. And I used more garlic. Awesome!!! I served with mashed potatoes, and my husband just loved it. I plan to use the leftover sauce over pasta for another meal, because it is just so yummy!
My family loves it! It's simple to make.
Thought this would be pretty good, but I didn't like the amount of Kalamata olives; there were too many and it overpowered the dish. If I were to make this again, I'd use only a 1/4 cup and slice them in half. I'd also use more garlic.
it was easy to make and taste great. all my friends loved it
As the sauce reduces it just gathers the different flavors. Very good, but it does take some time. Will make again, probably on the weekend.
