Green and Black Olive Chicken

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.

  1. That’s it? It’s so easy!!!!! I must make this. Some days I just don’t feel like putting too much work into dinner.

  2. That looks YUMMY! I love easy recipes that both Mother and Child can enjoy. I think I’ll make it tomorrow, but instead of rice I’ll do pasta.

  3. I’ll have to pass on this one, because I just can’t bear chicken and tomato sauce together. Olives, though, YUM.

  4. That looks really good and the recipe is so nice and easy. Some days I just dread cooking. How was your dinner tonight?
    Chee had the coconut chicken soup and I had the chicken spinach cream pasta. I enjoyed it Mine was rich and Chee’s was really spicey to me. The people were really nice to. I almost said hey my sis-in -law, J is coming in tonight. But then I though they would think I was odd. Well gee I am odd so I just should of said that.

  5. Ohhhhhhhhh! I just love easy, yummy recipes!!! Thanks for sharing! I will definitely try this one out! How interesting, since I just posted something on my blog about women not having time to cook or not even wanting to cook!

  6. Erielle, I’ve done the same thing with salsa and fish, so I don’t know why you couldn’t with chicken. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Chrissy, I’m looking forward to reading your post. I love to cook, and so does Ted, but not every dang day, and neither does Ted. Sometimes, it’s nice to have something super easy you can just whip up instead of getting pizza.

    Dew, no chicken and tomato together? That’s sad. I’m sorry.

    Laluna, we had a lovely time…we got three appitizers, and split them. They had two special salads, so we got those, and then the calimari as well. yum!

  7. Ok, so last night when you and I had dinner, and you asked if I had read this post… and I hadn’t. You totally used the same words and phrases from your post.

    To read your blog, truly is to know you!
    Lucky internets!
