If you need an effortless
dish for dinner
that comes together in 20 minutes,
this saucy chicken dinner is for you.
Chicken breasts braised in flavorful pico de gallo (salsa) and salty green olives for tender, delicious meat...
I love a recipe such as this that calls for the juice of a lime! This is an adapted Real Simple recipe. To speed up the process, I found a jar of pico de gallo sauce in the grocery store’s refrigerated section. You may prefer to chop your own mixture of onions, tomatoes and herbs.
Bill and I thought this was great. It’s easy peasy ~ it became one of my favorite chicken recipes, maybe it will be yours also!
Serve this dish with rice or a simple green salad and crusty bread ~ dinner doesn’t get much easier than this.
Don’t forget the lime wedges at serving time!
CHICKEN with OLIVES, SALSA and LIME
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4 cups pico de gallo
½ cup chopped green olives
Lime wedges, for serving
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high.
Season chicken all over with salt and pepper.
Add chicken to skillet and cook until golden brown on both sides, flipping half way through about 4 minutes per side.
Add pico de gallo and olives, and bring to a simmer.
Simmer until chicken is cooked through and sauce is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
