Tomato and Olive Chicken

This has a nice savory Mediterranean-style sauce which is also great for pasta, shrimp, or fish. Adapted from Real Simple Magazine May 2007.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Put rice on to cook according to package directions.
  3. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  4. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly soft, 5 minutes. Add the olives, garlic, and tomatoes and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes more. Return the chicken to the skillet, add the wine, and bring to a simmer. Cook until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has slightly thickened, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in the parsley. Divide the chicken among individual plates and spoon the sauce over the top. Serve with the rice.

Delicious and easy. I subbed chopped roma tomatoes and dried parsley, but otherwise made as directed.
