DH and I love this chicken! I cut the recipe in half and left out the green pepper (as I really dislike bell peppers). The flavours are really good and the nutritional numbers are just what I was looking for. Low fat and low sodium. Thank you so much for sharing. I made this for New Kids on the Block tag game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a large pan and cook chicken until brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.
  2. Add in the onion garlic and pepper and sauté until chicken is thoroughly cooked and vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. While chicken and vegetables are cooking, cook the broth, lemon juice, lemon peel, and oregano in a small pot; bring to a boil.
  4. Continue cooking for about 5 minutes, broth should reduce down to about 1/2 cup.
  5. Serve chicken topped with sauce and olives sprinkled on top.
