Mediterranean Chicken

Yield: 8 servings

Prep Time: 25 min

Cook Time: 35 min


6 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
8 skinless boneless chicken breast halves (about 2 1/2 pounds)
1 1/2 pounds assorted wild mushrooms (such as oyster, crimini and stemmed shiitake), sliced
1 1/2 cups low-salt chicken broth
2/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives
3 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon chopped shallot
1 Tablespoon drained capers
2 Tablespoons (1/4 stick) chilled butter
1 cup pear tomatoes (red and yellow)
3 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
3 Tablespoons pine nuts, toasted


1. Preheat oven to 200°F.

2. Heat 3 Tablespoons oil in large skillet over high heat. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Working in two batches, add chicken to skillet. Cook until brown and just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to ovenproof plate and place in oven to keep warm. Discard oil from skillet.

3. Add 3 Tablespoons oil to same skillet over high heat. Add mushrooms; sauté until wilted and beginning to brown, about 3 minutes. Add broth; boil until almost all liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes. Add olives, plum tomatoes, garlic, shallot and capers. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until liquid is reduced by half, about 7 minutes. Add butter; stir until melted. Mix in teardrop tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Spoon mushroom mixture over chicken. Sprinkle parsley and pine nuts over and serve.
