After tasting my version of this recipe, it reminds me of Carbonnade Flamande,
which you can find on this web site and in my cookbook as beef and beer stew.
Besides the different meat used, one recipe calls for breading the chicken, while
the other for flouring the beef. You'll find black olives in only one recipe. Chicken
tenders are boneless chicken breast sliced into smaller pieces.
