      We enjoyed this, but I ended up putting in a bunch of Greek Seasoning, Seasoning Salt and some all purpose seasoning to up the flavor. I also added some mushrooms which were great. Next time, I would add more olives (I used Kalamata olives this time which were perfect) and throw in a can of artichoke hearts. I used a whole chicken, cut up, removed the skin before cooking, and removed the bone from 1 breast to see the difference. The boneless, skinless breast was actually good (was afraid it might get grainy like in a crock pot and it did not). Served over a mix of orzo and rice. THANKS

      This was excellent with rabbit (2 fryers, cut up). DH is not fond of tomato-y foods, so I used cream of chicken soup instead of tomato paste.
