Here is a delicious, easy-to-make, Mediterranean-inspired dinner. Pan-fried chicken breasts are topped with a simple sauce of capers, fresh tomatoes, feta, olives and white wine. Ready in less than 30 minutes and full of flavor, this delicious chicken dish has become a weeknight dinner staple at my house.
- 1 garlic clove, sliced thin
- 4 free-range boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
- Flour for dredging, seasoned with salt and pepper
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 large tomatoes, chopped
- 2 teaspoons capers, chopped
- ½ cup olives, chopped
- ¼ cup white wine or water
- 2 tablespoons fresh oregano, minced
- ½ cup feta cheese, crumbled
- Place seasoned flour in a small bowl and dip the chicken breasts, thoroughly coating all sides. Heat oil in a large skillet and cook the breasts for 2-3 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through (internal temperature should read 165). Remove chicken from the pan and keep warm.
- Add the wine to the pan and raise the heat to high. Bring the liquid to a boil while you scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
- Once deglazed, add the tomatoes to the pan and season lightly with salt and pepper. Immediately add the capers and olives. Cook for 2-3 minutes more, until the tomatoes begin to break down.
- Place each chicken breast on a plate and spoon the tomato, caper and olive mixture over top.
- Add crumbled feta and sprinkle with oregano to serve.
