Skillet Chicken with Olives and Tomatoes

It’s just plain and simple, we are chicken lovers.  Poultry really is our go-to meal especially since Olivia likes to eat it too.  There are so many different ways to serve this meat and different cuts to choose from.  Chicken breast fillets are what usually show up on our plates.  As a kid I would only eat drumsticks but I like that I can now stuff, flatten and roll the chicken breasts.  It’s all about elevating the meat.

Since we have moved I go to the grocery store at least twice a week just trying to restock our refrigerator with groceries.  It’s all about large quantities and food to entertain family and friends.   Just BARE chicken has a new line of products and varieties.  They just launched family size chicken packages.  This is definitely handy when you have a family of more than four or you just want to have leftovers throughout the week.

Skillet Chicken with Olives and Tomatoes

We are still trying to get settled into our new home, so leftovers are a plus.  I wanted a simple yet fast dish for this family pack of chicken breast fillets.  We also have a ton of tomatoes around our house since we all just love them.  Olives always go well with chicken and tomatoes, so that was an easy choice for this dish as well.
