Olive 'n' Fig Chicken

I love green olives and figs, so I put this together with the chicken to have a salty-sweet combination. I found the green olive tapenade at my grocery store and the fig preserves at a specialty store.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 Teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 jar green olive tapenade
  • 2 Tablespoons fig preserves

Directions

Flatten the chicken to ½-inch thickness; sprinkle them with garlic salt and lemon pepper. In a large skillet, cook the chicken in oil over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170 degrees. Remove and keep warm.

In the same skillet, cook the tapenade and fig preserves over medium heat until 
heated through, stirring to loosen the browned bits from pan. Return the chicken to the pan; cook on low heat for 2-3 minutes or until the chicken is heated through. 

Olive Shopping Tip

Italian food is about simplicity and letting the ingredients shine. So make sure you get ingredients that are great quality and flavor. Farmers markets and specialty stores will have great produce and products. Just be sure to have some great olive oil.

Olive Cooking Tip

Unlike other highly regarded cuisines, Italian cooking is usually simple to make with many dishes having only 4 to 8 ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.
