Recipe was tasty BUT only after increasing the salt! I think that is why some of the others said it lacked taste. Around a teaspoon of salt for this quantity of chicken and it comes out tasting delicious.

Both my husband and I thought this recipe had no taste. I read the other review that said the same thing and I should never have tried it. It was a waste of time and some great ingredients and then it was a big flop.

Absolutely fantastic. A healthy recipe that tastes so homestyle your family would never know the difference. I did use half the olives and added a few capers. I also served it with rice instead of couscous, but it is very good without any carbs. Do your best to find the frozen artichoke hearts because it holds up better with the long cooking time.

It was very good. And even better the next day as leftovers. I couldn't find quick cooking tapioca, and had to use pearl tapioca. I pulverized it after soaking it but suspect that it did not work as well as quick cooking tapioca would have. Also had to use artichokes in a jar rather than frozen, and they did not hold up well with long cooking, so next time I will add those closer to the end. I will be making this again.

This is a delicious recipe. I used canned artichokes and both olives and capers. The flavor was great!

Delicious! I've made this dish several times. A great recipe for chicken thighs. You could prepare rice instead of couscous, it's a personal preference.

I've made this recipe several times, and it's one of my family's favorites. I use canned artichokes when I can't find the frozen.

This recipe is really good! I cut it in half since it is only 2 of us and there was still left overs. Really great recipe, can't wait to make it again!
