David said this was REALLY good.  So it’s going on our favorites list and we’ll be making it often.


  • 1 (3-pound) whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces (1)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed
  • 24 green olives, pitted
  • ½ cup gluten-free chicken broth
  • ½ cup dry white wine (2)
  • 1 teaspoon prepared Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon hot sauce (3)
  • 2 cups cooked white rice (4)
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped parsley


Sprinkle the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and brown them in the butter in a large skillet for about 3 minutes on each side.  Sauté the onion in the same skillet for an additional 3 to 5 minutes.  Pour chicken, onion, capers and olives into a greased 4-quart slow cooker.

In a small bowl, whisk together the broth, wine and mustard.  Pour over chicken in the slow cooker.  Add hot sauce.  Cover and cook on high for 3 to 3-1/2 hours or on low for 5-1/2 to 6 hours.

When ready to serve, place chicken over rice.  Ladle sauce and olives over each serving.  Garnish with parsley.

  1. I was looking forward to this recipe – looks like something we will enjoy! Tell me your take on the heat level in this dish – the Hub and I will love it, but Kidzilla’s palette tends to be sensitive to anything hot or spicy. I can certainly leave it out, but if it’s fairly mild, I’d go with it as-is.

    1. I’m kind of a meat and potatoes kind of girl. I like most Mexican food. I like meat. I like bread. I like simpler food than David does. I don’t like sauces usually or mayonnaise or sour cream. Seriously, I like very simple food. And I prefer each food item to be separate. I know – I sound like a child.
