  • 2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 5 breasts)
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • ¾ lb. crimini mushrooms (sliced)
  • 5 medium garlic cloves (minced)
  • 6 oz. canned black olives (sliced or chopped – drained)
  • ½ cup sun dried tomatoes (drained and chopped fine)


  • Sauté‘ the mushrooms and garlic in the olive oil over low to medium-low heat.
  • When the mushrooms just begin to wilt, add the chicken and sun dried tomatoes.
  • Cook until the chicken is completely cooked through. It should be at least 165 degrees F. on a meat thermometer.
  • Stir in the olives and remove pan from heat.
  • Allow to cool slightly and serve.
  • Note: If serving over pasta, a little parmesan would go a long way sprinkled on at the end. But we ate this as is and it was delish by itself.
