When you think you don’t have time to make a delicious dinner, you do! This easy chicken dish comes together in less than 20 minutes and rewards you with vibrant flavor. When great-tasting local cherry tomatoes go out of season in late summer, sweet grape tomatoes make a delicious substitute. (Be sure to talk to your diabetes healthcare team if you are considering making changes to your meal plan.)

Ingredients

  • 4 (4-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/8 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cups whole cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 8 black olives, such as Kalamata, pitted and quartered
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, minced, or 3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled
  • Fresh rosemary sprigs, for garnish (optional)

Directions 

  1. Sprinkle the chicken with the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until well browned and cooked through, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  3. Add the garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring constantly, until the tomatoes just begin to blister, about 2 minutes. Add the broth, olives, scallions and rosemary, and cook, stirring constantly, until the skins of a few of the tomatoes begin to burst, about 1 minute longer.
  4. Arrange the chicken on 4 plates and top evenly with the tomato mixture. Garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs, if desired. Serve immediately.
