The key to the quick cooking of this One Pot 30 Minute Chicken with Tomatoes & Olives is thin chicken breasts. My grocery store sells thin cut chicken breasts, but if you can’t find them, just cut any boneless, skinless chicken breast in half lengthwise.

Then it’s all about flavor. First, dry white wine makes a delicious sauce and added chicken stock. The dish is finished with salty kalamata olives and sweet cherry tomatoes with a little freshness from basil.

A quick, easy, healthy dish, one pot meal in under 30 minutes. How cool (and yummy) is that?
