Chicken meal to Flatten your Tummy

Olives, tomatoes, and fresh herbs make this tummy-flattening dish a winner.

Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4

• 1 Tbsp olive oil
• 1 lg onion, coarsely chopped
• 3 lg cloves garlic, minced
• 1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary or 3/4 tsp dried rosemary, crumbled
• 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1" pieces
• 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
• 40 lg pitted kalamata olives, sliced (about 1 1/3 c), MUFA
• 8 oz lg cherry tomatoes, halved, or 2 med tomatoes, cut into 1/2" pieces (about 1 1/2 c)


1. Warm oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and rosemary and cook, stirring often, until tender and just starting to brown, 3 to 4 minutes.
2. Add chicken, sprinkle with pepper, and stir. Cook, turning often, until no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Add olives. Cook and stir 1 minute until heated and fragrant. Stir in tomatoes. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook 4 to 5 minutes longer, until tomatoes are heated and juicy. Serve over rice or couscous, if desired.
