Italian Chicken and Green Olives
This recipe will make you look so good! The red and yellow peppers with the green olives, in the rich creamy sauce, makes a beautiful presentation! I served it for company just the other night and my guests said, "you missed your calling in life, you should have your own restaurant." (It was really good) This recipe is #1 on my "company's coming" recipe list!
"This is a great recipe! My roommate does not like sauces made with milk or cream though, so I adapted this one by making a roux of 2 T. butter and 2 T. flour before adding the wine. I whisked the wine in to make a smooth sauce. After adding the remaining 1 T. butter, it was a little thick so I thinned it with chicken stock. Just wonderful!"- cindyd
