    This recipe was very easy and good. I did make a couple of changes. I added 1 cup chicken broth along with the wine, also 1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning. I felt the cooking time was long for boneless chicken so I cut back. I used the cherry tomatoes but next time will use plum tomatoes seeded and chopped. I served over pasta but think it would be even better over rice. Topped with parmesan. Will make again. Thanks.  -  12 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Wonderful! Added a bit of italian seasoning, and used capers instead of olives. I also sauteed some onions with the garlic. Served over rice, and was a big hit. This ones a keeper!  -  21 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
