Olive and Chicken Stew

    1 hour 20 minutes

    This is very easy to make if you have a large frypan! It's a different take on a chicken stew, very flavourful. Serve with crusty French bread.

    Oh my goodness, this was GREAT! I like all the ingredients but my husband and I are a little "plain jane" and I just wasn't sure - it was soooo good!!! followed recipe to the T.  -  08 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    First of all - this calls for a pretty big skillet to cook it all in! I liked the recipe and the tases, it was just a little hard to eat. I would use sliced olives next time and use 5 medium potatoes. Using only 3 for 6 chicken breats was not enough. I did not like the cocktail onions, so I ate around them, but I think they gave the dish the nice flavor. I probably would try this again, but not very often.  -  22 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
