Braised Chicken Thighs With Bell Peppers, Olives and Tomatoes

This used what I have on hand, it has been tweaked a bit from the original recipe in Martha Stewart Living, March 2004. Although this uses 10 cloves of garlic, crushed whole garlic isn't as strong as chopped or minced garlic. Supposedly the tomatoes in canned whole tomatoes are of better quality than those used for canned crushed tomatoes, but sometimes every minute counts. You may use fresh tomatoes, but you may want to add more salt to suit your taste preference. Serve over pasta or rice. (Served over whole wheat pasta.)
