  • 4 Chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups grapes different grapes give slightly different flavors, I usually use green grapes
  • 30 ounces pitted olives 2- 15 oz cans
  • 2 Tbsp fresh mint chopped
  • 2 tsp parsley
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp black pepper coarse grind is our preference


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Put grapes and olives into a large oven proof casserole dish, at least a 9 by 13 inch pan. In a large skillet, saute the onions in the butter and olive oil until lightly browned. 
  • Pour the onions and olive oil/ butter sauce over the grapes and olives. Sprinkle half of the spices and herbs over the grapes and olives.
  • Place the pan with olives and grapes in the oven. Begin cooking while you brown the chicken.
  • Season chicken with remaining salt, garlic, and pepper. Brown quickly over medium high heat on both sides. This should take maybe 2 to 3 minutes per side depending on how hot your pan is.
  • Transfer the chicken to the casserole pan placing over the olives and grapes.  Bake uncovered for 35-45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Top with additional mint and parsley before serving.


Family preference is to serve this with white rice like Basmati or Jasmine rice.
