  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Place chicken in the skillet and cook until browned, about 5 minutes per side.
  2. Reduce heat to medium; 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).

This tasted great. I sauteed onions and mushrooms along with the garlic and added them to the mix. I served this over pasta, but there wasn't enough sauce even though I doubled the liquid. Ne...

This was one of the best I have done in a while, and I've done lots. I was surprised at the flavor, not at all like a martini, but the gin and vermouth did wonders to the olives, and that was t...

Wow - this is great, especially if you are a martini fan. Very easy, too! I highly recommend adding some artichokes for added texture. Yum!!

Delicious, easy, pretty quick. Only differences I made were substituting vodka for gin and using only 2 chicken breasts instead of 4.
