Mediterranean Chicken With Artichokes, Peppers, and Olives

A Heart-Healthy Entrée Recipe

  • 4 ounces chicken breast, cubed or sliced
  • 4 Tbsp. gluten free bread crumbs
  • 3 Tbsp. organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 roasted red peppers, from a jar, cut into strips
  • 20 medium black olives
  • 1 (6-oz.) jar marinated artichokes, kept in liquid
  • 8 oz. cooked short pasta such as ziti
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Roll the chicken pieces in crumbs to coat, and sprinkle with pepper. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook for about 2 minutes; do not allow to brown. Add the chicken and cook for about 4 minutes, turning until lightly browned on all sides. Add the peppers and olives and heat through, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the artichokes with liquid and cook until heated through, 3 minutes more. 

Makes 2 servings.
