Now that the holiday season is over . . . for now, it is time to settle in the comfort of our homes while the weather does whatever it wants and we warm up with a good meal . . . that is also fast and easy!
Quick Chicken Meal
1 tablespoon olive oil (cooking oil of your choice)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons red vinegar
2 large tomatoes, chopped or a can of diced tomatoes
1/2 cup sliced, black olives
2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan or Romano cheese for sprinkling
Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the chicken, cover, and cook for about 15 minutes our until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from the pan and set aside.
Add the onion, tomatoes, and olives to the pan bringing to a simmer over medium heat and cook for five minutes. Add the chicken back to the pan and heat through. Season with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper to taste, cook one, more minute, and serve. Have the grated cheese read for individual serving at the table
This meal goes great over hot rice or pasta of any shape. A salad on the side along with some warm garlic bread would probably earn you even more culinary master points in the kitchen.
