Mediterranean Chicken

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

VERY quick and easy, not to mention delicious. Nice for dinner with couscous or in a sandwich/pita or on greens for lunch or a snack. Perfect as a quick-fix when someone stops over unexpectedly, in a buffet or brunch or a favorite family meal. Nice alternative to the regular curried chicken salad.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 12 cups olives, sliced (pimento stuffed Seville olives)
  • 12 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed

  1. In a large skillet, heat oil and onion.
  2. Cook for four minutes, until onion is transparent.

I "made the recipe" without reading the instructions so found out afterward that I really didn't make this recipe! LOL! So I won't use any stars. But here's what I did ... I made this as a chicken salad using canned chicken and just throwing everything else in with it. I used half the lemon juice, though. It was quite tasty and enjoyable. I'd give my erroneous method 3 stars.
