Mediterranean Chicken
(Makes 2 servings)

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

Directions:
Roll the chicken cubes in flour 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.
