    Chef Kate's Note:

    A Jamie Oliver recipe which I find quite delightful. Because I don't like dark meat, I make it with all chicken breasts--and they come out juicy and tender. The recipe says to add the olives with pits. I have--just remember to warn your guests.

      DH and I made this chicken recipe for a dinner party a few nights ago. I followed the ingredients and steps as posted, using a combination of both chicken breasts and thighs and I doubled the recipe to accommodate a greater number of guests. I also chopped up the olives and used pitted Kalamatas per personal preference. Everyone agreed that the dish was good; however, I highly recommend future chefs take the advice of reviewer, Doc's Mom, and put the rosemary in a cheese cloth bag. While I was able to remove many of the whole sprigs as the recipe indicates, it was impossible to remove the the pieces of rosemary that had broken away from the stems during boiling, and thus several guests commented that the rosemary seemed to overpower their dishes. All in all, a nice meal. Made for ZWT4.

      I have made this dish several times and its always a favorite at home. The first time I followed the recipe exactly as stated. It was wonderful! The next time, I added porcini mushrooms and most recently, I added fresh chopped baby spinich. All three times, this was a great dish! I also added extra anchovies for the extra rich salty taste. They disolve into the sauce so the DH didn't even know he was eating them!! Great recipe thanks for sharing!

      Delicious simple dish bursting in flavour. Don't be scared of those anchovies because they disappear in the juiciness just adding saltiness and zest. I served this with cannelini beans in olive oil (as Jamie recommends) and with fresh steamed green beans.
