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.
