Last night's dinner

Sunday, December 13, 2009
Actually it was Thursday night's dinner. I just didn't have a chance to post it on Friday. It was very spur of the moment. I looked into the refrigerator and what did I see first? A package of boneless, skinless chicken cutlets and a big jar of olives. I ran to my laptop and Googled "chicken with olives". I clicked on the first item returned in the search results. Sounded good and simple. And so, in my desperation, I made it.Chicken with Olives

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 tbl. olive oil
3 tbl. butter
1 c. dry, white wine
16 olives with pimentos

Brown chicken on both sides in oil and butter. Cover and cook 10 minutes. Turn chicken and add 1/2 cup of white wine and olives. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes. Turn again. Cook until tender. Remove chicken to platter. Add remaining 1/2 cup white win to pan. Bring to a boil for 1 minute. Stir to scrape up browned bit. Pour over sauce over chicken.

I served it with plain penne pasta and drizzled extra sauce over the pasta. Can also be served with rice or egg noodles and crusty bread.

Give it a try! It's surprisingly delicious!
