    1. Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of plastic wrap or greaseproof paper and pound each breast to about 1cm thick.
    2. In a large frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Briefly cook chicken breasts in oil, turning to lightly brown both sides. Add garlic and rosemary, and continue cooking until garlic is soft. Pour wine into pan, and cover pan with lid. Bring to a boil, and simmer for about 5 minutes.
    3. Add tomatoes and olives to the pan; continue cooking, covered, for approximately 10 minutes. Serve with crusty bread and salad.

    quick and easy chicken dish...used salt and pepper before browning the chicken and added the tomatoes about 5 min after the olives so they wouldn't turn to mush..yummy.  -  23 Jan 2010

    Used different ingredients. I thought this was so easy to make and my boyfriend absolutely loved it! I added about 1 cup of mushrooms as well and also added the tomatoes toward the end of cooking.  -  29 Nov 2009
