There's no passport required to enjoy the delightful tastes of the sunny Mediterranean if you make this healthy main dish recipe. Our Riviera Chicken is packed with healthy fresh ingredients you'll love!

What You'll Need

  • 4 (4-ounce) boneless skinless chicken breast halves, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 can (14.5-ounce) diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano
  • 1/2 cup drained, sliced black olives
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon peel
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

What to Do

  1. Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat to medium-high heat.
     
  2. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place in skillet, cover, and cook 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink. Remove chicken from skillet. Reduce heat to medium.
     
  3. Add tomatoes, olives, lemon peel, and garlic to skillet. Cook about 4 minutes, or until hot, stirring occasionally. Return chicken to skillet and heat through.
     

Notes

 

  • TIP: When using lemon peel, be sure not to include any of the white pith; it's very bitter.
  • Finish up this satisfying meal with any of these Mediterranean treats!

I either review and/or print diabetic recipes. I have noticed most of the servings are around 8 or 10. Since I live alone, I don't need to make anything that serves more then one, maybe 2 or 3. Can you develop recipes for me?

Hi there! Our Test Kitchen doesn't develop recipes based on serving size specifically. However, if there is a specific recipe on our site you need help with, please feel free to let us know.

Although I personally do not like the black olives, three out of the five of us do. I think this would be something that we could all agree on to have for dinner. My husband is not a chicken lover, but he will eat it from time to time. I think this might be one of the dishes he will end up wanting the most often when I make chicken.

It's hard to believe that this is for diabetics it's so good!! Easy to make and wonderful to eat!!

This recipe would be delicious. I try to direct people who are looking for low fat and delicious foods to this site but nobody ever rates any of them.
