It features black olives which are a good source of heart-healthy monosaturated fats that help to increase good HDL cholesterol, along with garlic, roasted peppers, and more.

Mediterranean Chicken
(Makes 2 servings)

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

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. Add the artichokes with liquid and cook until heated through, 3 minutes more. Serve over short pasta or rice.
