sicilianchicken pinit

25 minute Sicilian olive chicken is deliciso. The title explains the dish entirely. I love chicken, olives, Italian seasoning, spinach, and diced tomatoes. In light if this, Sicilian olive chicken suits me perfectly.

I was first inspired by the recipe one night when I was having guests over. Some chicken breasts were lurking in the fridge along with the other ingredients in my pantry. I had it made up in less than 25 minutes and my dinner guests went wild. I simply didn’t have the heart to tell them how easy it was to make.

Best Season: Suitable throughout the year


I was having dinner guests over one night and needed dinner in a hurry. I didn't want just any dinner, however. I wanted something on the Italian side and certainly something that would impress them. Then I came up with the idea of Sicilian olive chicken. The results certainly didn't let me down.



Off On

  1. Season the chicken on both sides with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. 

  2. Add oil to a pan over medium high heat. Place the chicken in and fry until cooked through and browned on both sides. This should take about 5 or 6 minutes. Once cooked, set aside on a plate. 

  3. In the same pan, add in the tomatoes and stir to deglaze the pan. Next, add in the olives, capers, and spinach. Place a lid on and allow to simmer until the spinach wilts down. 

  4. Stir the sauce until well incorporated. Place the chicken back in, spoon sauce over the top and serve.

  5. Enjoy your 25 minutes Sicilian olive chicken.

I always cut my chicken breasts in half to allow faster even cooking. You can use the whole breast, just adjust the cooking time accordingly.
