Aegean Chicken Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Aegean Chicken which belongs to the Poultry recipe category.
- 1 pounds (680 g) boneless, skinless chicken breast
- cup (60 ml) olive oil
- 4 ounces (115 g) kasseri cheese, sliced
- 8 tablespoons (120 ml) tapenade
- cup (60 ml) dry white wine
- 2 cloves garlic
One at a time, pound the chicken breasts until they're inch (6 mm) thick all over.
Cut the breasts into 6 servings, if necessary.
Saute them in the olive oil over medium-high heat.
When they're turning golden on the bottom, turn them and lay the slices of kasseri over them.
Let them cook another 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese is starting to melt.
Spread the tapenade over the breasts and add the wine to the skillet.
Let the whole thing cook for another minute or two, just to warm the tapenade and make sure the chicken is cooked through.
Remove the chicken to serving plates, add the garlic to the wine left in the skillet, stir the whole thing and let it boil for a minute or so, and pour it over the chicken before serving.
