Mediterranean Smothered Chicken

21

I am a fan of the flavors used in Mediterranean cooking. Capers, lemon, garlic, olive oil, basil, artichokes - I say yes, please to all of them! This chicken dish is quick to put together and delicious over brown rice that has been seasoned with a little bit of lemon juice or the pasta of your choice.
