Easy Italian Chicken

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by FightingwithFood

Since my husband loves black olives, I am trying to incorporate them more into my recipes. I came up with this one and he flipped over the sauce! It took me less than 30 minutes from starting preparation until it hit the table - so easy! I served it with the sauce over brown rice.

This was a nice, easy, simple dinner. I cut the recipe in half and skipped the stewed tomatoes, only using the Italian diced. I used kalamata olives as they were what I had on hand. I didn't see where the oregano was supposed to be used so I added it to the sauce. My chicken breasts were quite large and I needed to cook them a lot longer when I added them back to the sauce. Also because they were so large, I got 3 servings from the 2 breasts, along with 4 oz vermicelli, which I served it over instead of rice. This worked out well for a quick weekday dinner. Thanks for sharing!
