Our family and dinner guests enjoyed this dish last night with steamed rice. I had to prepare the dish early, so I browned the chicken, then put everything together and let it cook in a crock pot on high for 4 hours. During the last hour, I added fresh thyme, and it was wonderful! Thank you.

This was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I give it 5 stars, cause seriously, I was really nervous making it... I didn't see how the olives would be good mixed with tomatoes and wine, but it was exquisite! Will definitely make again, and I have already forwarded the recipe to my sister! One thing I changed... only had 3 breast, which was plenty for my husband and I, but kept other measurements the same. Also used one can of diced tomatoes... drained it and added 2 fresh tomatoes quartered. Delicious.. As recommended, I served it over Saffron rice, what a great idea.. TOO GOOD!

Like others I found this way too bland as written and I honestly think 45 minutes is way too long to cook the chicken as it ends up turning out rubbery. The second time I made this I doctored it up with loads more garlic, lots of fresh basil and oregano and substituted heavy cream for the chicken broth. I also removed the chicken breasts after browning them, made the sauce, brought that to a simmer then re-added the chicken and simmered it for 20 minutes. It turned out much better for my tastebuds.
