Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.
Makes: 6 servings.
***Greek kalamata olives are a natural in this dish - if you have them, feel free to use them. They have a bright, tangy flavor that adds a deliciously authentic dimension.
