I had forgotten about this food combination until I ran accross this recipe. It was wonderful and will be a "new family staple". The seasoning is just right and the vegetable combination makes it very festive.

GREAT AND WONDERFUL. OUR FAMILY REALLY ENJOYED THIS CHICKEN DISH. WE WERE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING WE HAD NEVER TRIED BEFORE. BUT WE WILL HAVE THIS AGAIN.

LOVED IT! THE WHOLE FAMILY LOVED IT TOO!

A very good chicken and rice dish. My family loved this. I used only boned, skinned chicken breasts and left out the olives.

I loved it, but did skip the olives and instead of doing the rice as they did I used my instant rice in a bag, I have issues with alomost any other rice. But it was still great.

I've never tried something like this recipe before and was concerned my family would not care for it. Boy was I wrong. Everyone loved this recipe and asked how to make it. You need to have brownie points for all the refers...
