I was looking for yet another way to make boneless, skinless chicken breasts interesting and, after a rummage in the fridge, came up with this. You'll notice that there is no added salt - that's because the olives, capers and artichoke hearts add enough salt.

Step-by-Step

  2. Decrease heat to medium-low, turn breasts face down and cover. Cook at medium-low until breasts are slightly underdone (8-10 minutes, depending on the size).
  3. Add olives, artichoke hearts, capers, red pepper flakes and lemon juice. Simmer, uncovered, for about 5 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
  4. Romove chicken to serving platter and increase heat to high. Let liquid in pan reduce about 1/2, add butter and stir until butter is melted and sauce has an even consistency.
