skillet chicken ole 2I broke out my favorite cookbook recently, Southern Living’s Easy Weeknight Favorites.  We tried some new recipes and relived some old favorites.  This one is a definite tried and true treasure.

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped

Cook chicken, garlic, and onion in hot oil in a large skillet over medium heat for five minutes, stirring frequently.  Add tomatoes, green chiles, corn, olives, salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.  Uncover and simmer 10 more minutes.
