If you’re the type of cook who doesn’t like to cook, doesn’t really know HOW to cook, I’ve got an easy-peasy recipe for you today. This is the kind of recipe that you open a jar, pour it out, pop in the oven, and dinner’s ready. You can sit down with a glass of wine, and watch Take Home Chef, or whatever, while you wait…So, here goes.
Green and Black Olive Chicken
2 – 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 jar Barilla brand Green and Black Olive Sauce
Preheat oven to 375.
Line a baking dish with foil (makes clean up easier, and we’re going for easy, right?). Wash and pat chicken dry, then place in foil lined baking dish. Pour sauce over chicken. Put in oven.
Go watch TV, read a book, walk the dog, do some blogging, whatever. Oh, maybe make some rice and salad, if you’re up to it.
After about 30 minutes, dinner’s ready.
I liked this dish…it was easy, yes, but the salty tang from the olives made a yummy flavor, and we all enjoyed it. I actually got the idea from a Safeway Select Sun Dried Tomato pasta and cooking sauce, which made me think…hmmm…I could put this in a pan and simmer the chicken in it, and it would be yummy…but then I opened the sauce, and it was NASTY. Tasted metallic or something. So I dumped it, and got out the only other sauce we had in the house, which was this one. And yes, I could have taken the picture BEFORE we ate, to make it prettier, but I didn’t think of it in time. Oh well.
