Easy Olive Martini Chicken

  • 2 tablespoons Basil "organic" extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sliced pimento-stuffed green olives
  • 1/4 cup gin
  • 1 tablespoon dry vermouth
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Place chicken in the skillet and cook until browned, about 7 minutes per side.
Reduce heat; add butter and garlic. Cook and stir mixture until garlic is fragrant, about 3 minutes. Mix olives, gin, vermouth, and lemon juice into chicken mixture; simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center and sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
