Mediterranean Chicken

Denise Dernorsek


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.
