Chicken With Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Olives

Chicken With Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Olives created by justcallmetoni

Based on a Martha Stewart Everyday Food recipe, this is a quick dish recipe that has clean lines and flavors. Though baked, the chicken ressembles poached chicken The Mediterranean inspired ingredients couple well with couscous and a simple green salad.

ingredients

directions

  • Using a paring knife, cut the peel from the lemon taking care to leave not include the white pith. (Should you trim off pith, go ahead and remove it from the back of the peel.) Slice the peel into matchstick pieces.
  • In a small saucepan, bring the water to a slow boil. Add the peel and sun-dried tomatoes. Cook 6-8 minutes until the tomatoes are soft. Remove the peel and tomatoes and place them on a paper towel or clean kitchen cloth. Reserve 1/4 cup of the broth for later. (I like to use the rest to make couscous or rice, otherwise you can discard.).
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • To prepare chicken breasts, pound any thick ends. Rub with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and season with pepper and garlic powder. Use more than stated if desired. Place chicken breasts in a covered baking dish skinned side up.
  • Cut the tomatoes into 1/4 inch thick strips. Mix tomatoes, lemon and olives together with the remaining teaspoon of olive oil and pour on top of the chicken.
  • Squeeze juice from 1/2 lemon over the dressed chicken. Add the reserved 1/4 cup of tomato broth to the bottom of a baking dish and cover with top or aluminum foil. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until juices run clear.

    We followed Kittencalskitchen's suggestions and it turned out great. The chicken was a little overdone by the time it got out of the oven though. =( I couldn't give the recipe a full 5 stars because we had to add things to it to make it better, but it's still pretty good in my book. I liked the kalamata olives and I'm not usually a big fan. This is a good, simple recipe. You may want to find something else if you're looking to prepare a meal to impress guests.

    Since this was the first time making this recipe I kept the ingredients almost as stated, this is similar to a Greek chicken recipe I have made in the past, the sun-dried tomatoes with the kalamata olives produces a full flavor dish, I also sauteed onion and fresh garlic before adding to the baking pan with the chicken, so I omitted the garlic powder, I flavored my chicken breasts with seasoned salt and black pepper before browning them, the end result was a hearty flavorful chicken dish myself and DH enjoyed, Thanks Toni!

    My DH didn't care for this one at all and I thought it was marginal. Didn't enjoy the taste of the olives with this dish (though usually I very much enjoy kalamata olives, esp. in my greek salad) and the rest of the flavors weren't enough to give it any zing.

    I was SO disappointed in this. Such good ingredients, but for me the sauce was just a failure. It was very thin, dark and rather bitter (though of course I avoided any pith) and the oil on the chicken was unnecessary and resulted in an oily feel to the chicken pieces, ironic in a dish that is relatively lowfat.

    I really loved this chicken recipe! I have been eating low cal, low carb, low fat for a few weeks now and this was the best meal yet!! The chicken was so flavorful and I loved the lemon! It was subtle but lovely. I ate it on a bed of spinach. Thanks Toni!!!
