this is a nice recipe , a little plain for me though i need sauce , will maybe add a bit of stock near the end next time.

I used chicken breasts sliced, and fresh peppers added earlier and green olives with just one lemon. I also added shallots .It was lovely, and my guests enjoyed it. Amazingly easy, and excellent if you want to make something that you do not have to fuss over.

I replaced the jar peppers with fresh red peppers. You need to add the peppers earlier in the cooking time to give them time to soften but not dry out. I also added peeled shallots at the same time as the potatoes. I added a good twist of lemon pepper towards the end of the cooking time of the chicken and potatoes.

This dish is good if you like a strong citrus taste and olives... Personally it was just a bit too much for me.

I loved this - however, the boys in the family hated it. To take account of their liking for spicy food, I included Cajun spices when I fried the chicken. They liked that a lot! To help pad it out a little (and reduce the potatoes) I used mushrooms, which they also liked a lot. However, my hubby hated the potatoes and the both of them hated the orange. ~shrug~ I loved it and served it with a little green salad dressed in a little Balsamic vinegar. YUM!

I roasted the peppers instead of buying them ready since the jared ones are very expensive here where I live and hard to get. Simple, fast, healthy and delicous meal - and the children liked it! I will make it again and again...

i used skinless chicken and green peppers instead. i add zucchini and peeled the oranges before i add it. it was a hit. i will definitely cook it again!!!
