Gin Martini Chicken

You don't have to be a big fan of gin martinis
(personally, I prefer vodka) but you do have to love olives!

2 TBSP olive oil
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
4 TBSP real butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup gin
2 TBSP dry vermouth
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup pimento-stuffed green olives, chopped

1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
2. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Place chicken in the skillet, and cook
until browned on each side, about 5 minutes per side.

3.Reduce heat to medium, and add the butter and garlic.
Saute for about 5 minutes, until butter is melted and garlic is fragrant.
4. Pour in the gin, vermouth, lemon juice, and olives;
simmer for about 20 min. or until chicken is cooked through.
For serving, I like to pile the olive mixture on top of chicken breasts, drizzling with extra sauce.

Garlic infused angel hair pasta is an excellent side dish.


  1. This sounds delish! Gotta love the dry vermouth.

  2. My husband will eat green olives on anything! He would love this dish.
