Sicilian Olive Chicken

Coming up with healthy dinner ideas every night is tough!  I was surfing around the net and found this salty, low fat and low carb dinner!  It was a big hit with my boyfriend.  If you like olives, you will love this! 

Sicilian Olive Chicken 

2- 4 chicken breasts 
1 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes
1 bag of fresh spinach
1 cup white wine (you can use chicken stock) 
1/2 cup green and kalamata olives chopped length wise 
1 tbsp. capers
1 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 tbsp. oregano
1 tbsp. Italian seasonings
3 garlic cloves 
olive oil
salt and pepper


 
Pound out your chicken breasts to about 1 inch thick.  Coat them in olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, italian seasonings, or whatever Italian type herbs you have on hand.  



Brown the chicken cutlets in olive oil in a big pan.  Cook 4 minutes on the first side and about 2 minutes on the other.  You will not cook the chicken all the way through yet.  Now remove and set aside. 

Add garlic, capers, and olives to the pan. Let them saute for a minute or two.  Then add in spinach and stir until it starts wilting.  This only a takes a minute or two.  Add all of your seasonings....oregano, Italian spices, and the red pepper.  Also salt and pepper.  Now deglaze with the white wine, or you can use chicken stock.  Then add the can of tomatoes and return the chicken to the pan.   Let the chicken cook another 4 - 5 minutes.  



I served this with roasted brussel sprouts!  Yumalicioius y'all!
