  • 4 tablespoons olive oil divided 
  • 2 large chicken breasts sliced in half or pounded out and cut in two--you want 4 cutlets
  • salt & pepper
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper chopped
  • 1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes packed in olive oil & herbs chopped
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives halved
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • lemon juice to taste
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock or white wine
  • splash cream 1/4-1/2 cup
  • fresh parsley
  • more salt and pepper to taste
  • cooked white rice


  • In a large skillet, preheat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Stir salt and pepper into flour. Coat chicken in flour and cook in hot oil until browned but not necessarily cooked. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  • Pour in remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in the same pan and reduce heat to medium. Saute onions, garlic, green pepper, and sun-dried tomatoes until onions have softened, 5 minutes. Stir in olives, bay leaf, oregano, lemon juice, and white wine or stock.
  • Place chicken breasts back into the pan. Cover and cook 5-10 minutes. Reduce heat and stir in cream, parsley, and more salt and pepper. Serve over warm rice with lemon slices.
