Makes 4-6 servings
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 5-6 hours on LOW

Note from Cassie: I made this dish with boneless skinless chicken breasts - made the recipe as is...however the chicken dried up so I would recommend increasing the chicken broth to 1 cup and to add a bit more flavor keep the juices with the olives. We thought that the dish would be really good if you added feta to the dish once it's plated.
