  • Make sure your chicken isn't too thick. Also, I had to use more than 2 TB of olive oil. - 10/15/09

  • Very, very good. I had to use cider vinegar in a pinch, but it still came out great. With a whole wheat pita and a glass of wine, it was downright luxurious. - 5/16/07

  • This is a colorful, healthy main dish. I used a white balsamic vinegar, which has a more delicate taste. Hubby and Mom-In-Law sang praises. - 4/15/07
