Here’s a one skillet quick chicken recipe with fresh ingredients that infuse the chicken with incredible flavor. Best if use Kalamata olives and fresh basil.

  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/3 cup sliced Kalamata olives
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil or 1 tablespoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/3 cup chopped Italian parsley

Directions

1. Sprinkle chicken with paprika, salt and pepper; drizzle with lemon juice.

2. In large nonstick skillet over medium heat, coated with nonstick cooking spray, cook chicken on each side until chicken is golden, about 3-5 minutes each side.

Italian (flat leaf) parsley has more flavor than curly parsley and is better for cooking.
