1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper to your taste. Heat oil in heavy deep skillet over medium high heat.  Brown chicken on both sides, about a minute each. Push chicken to the side and saute onion and garlic until soft about 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and olives. Cover and simmer over low heat 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken juices run clear and chicken meat is no longer pink inside. Uncover and stir in basil. Simmer uncovered a minute or two to thicken slightly. Serve over hot cooked rice. Serves 4.

About Me
I love to develop new recipes. I have had 15 recipes published by Reiman publications, publishers of TASTE OF HOME magazine. I like to try at least one new recipe a week. My other interests that aren't listed above are running and horse racing. By profession I am a registered medical technologist currently working in microbiology at a local medical center.
My favorite things to cook
Soups. Main dishes for interesting evening meals. Simple baking like cookie jar cookies and quick breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I basically make Thanksgiving dinner like my mom did.
My cooking triumphs
Winning a runner up prize for my lasagne recipe when I worked for the Nestle corporation. (I was a part time R&D assistant for the Willy Wonka Candy Factory)
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
