Paleo Mediterranean Chicken

There is a fantastic restaurant here in Fayetteville, NC. It really is one of the only good restaurants here. Its called the Mash House, and their Heart Healthy Chicken dish helped inspire my Mediterranean chicken recipe. In their dish there is eggplant and tomato, so I decided to switch it up a bit. My variation was delicious. The best part is that the topping is mostly vegetables, so feel free to go a little heavy on it.

Paleo Mediterranean Chicken

2-3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 onion, minced
2 zucchini, chopped into small pieces
1/2 cup roasted red peppers, cut into small pieces
14 oz can artichoke, cut into small pieces
2 2.25 oz cans sliced kalamata olives, chopped
sea salt and pepper, to taste
oil (we used avocado)

Preheat oven to 350. In large oven safe skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Sear the chicken breast on both sides until golden brown. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. In another skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and saute until translucent. Add zucchini and cook until zucchini is just cooked through. Add peppers, artichokes and olives. Season with salt and pepper. Saute until warmed through. Serve veggie mix over the chicken breasts. Enjoy!
