Chicken with Olives


1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 large onion sliced
3 plum tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup sliced, pitted black olives
1/2 cup small pimento stuffed olives
2 tablespoons minced fresh basil or 2 teaspoons dried

Hot cooked rice

Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper to your taste. Heat oil in heavy deep skillet over medium high heat.  Brown chicken on both sides, about a minute each. Push chicken to the side and saute onion and garlic until soft about 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and olives. Cover and simmer over low heat 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken juices run clear and chicken meat is no longer pink inside. Uncover and stir in basil. Simmer uncovered a minute or two to thicken slightly. Serve over hot cooked rice. Serves 4.
