Olive Chicken with Herbs & Lemon

This is another great recipe sent to me by Allison. Here is what she wrote:

"Ok - this is quite possibly the simplest and yummiest meal I've ever put together. I didn't measure anything - just estimated, threw it together and let it sit while I heated the skillet and browned the garlic and onions."


1 chicken breast (the full heart shaped piece!) sliced or chopped
5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 cup fresh green olives, pitted and roughly chopped
~1/4-1/2 cup red onion, chopped
Zest of 1 lemon
Salt (to taste)
Ground pepper (to taste)
Dried basil (~3 tbsp)
Ginger powder or fresh (~1 tsp)
Olive oil


1. Marinate chopped chicken in olive oil, basil, ginger, salt, pepper and lemon zest.
2. Heat skillet on med., then brown onion and garlic in olive oil
3. Add chicken to skillet.
4. For the last 3 minutes, add olives (to warm, don't add to early so it doesn't absorb raw chicken juice)
5. Serve like stir fry: over rice, next to noodles or as the center of a grilled sandwich!

Thanks for sending me this yummy dish!
