Sicilian Chicken

Simmering the chicken pieces in tomatoes, olives, golden raisins, balsamic vinegar and basil provides the flavors of Sicily in this one-skillet dish.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound each breast half to 1/2" thickness using a meat mallet or heavy skillet. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Place flour in a shallow dish; dredge chicken in flour.
  4. Add chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Add wine; cook 1 minute.
  5. Add olives and the next 4 ingredients (through tomatoes); bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes or until chicken is done. Sprinkle with basil.
  7. Note: Sicilian olives are large green olives marinated in herbs; you can substitute Spanish manzanilla olives. Accompany with orzo pasta and Chianti, if you're pouring wine.

This was excellent! I substituted currants for the golden raisins since I don't like raisins much, and the recipe was delicious. It sounded like an odd combination of flavors, but they melded beautifully.
