Ingredients

Toasted Almond Broccoli: 

Directions

A fresh tomato-basil relish tops this simple chicken dish. The broccoli takes only minutes to cook in a microwave oven. It's topped with toasted almonds.

Mix tomatoes, onions, sweet pimientos, and basil together in a small bowl. Add vinegar and toss to mix. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside. 

Place chicken between 2 pieces of waxed paper or aluminum foil and flatten with a meat mallet or the bottom of a heavy skillet to 1/2-inch thick. 

Heat a large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat and spray with olive oil spray. Add chicken and saute 3 minutes per side. Sprinkle salt and pepper, to taste, on the cooked sides. Divide between 2 dinner plates and spoon the tomato relish on top.

Toasted Almond Broccoli: 

Heat a nonstick skillet on medium heat and add almonds. (This can be done in the same skillet used for the chicken.) Saute 1 minute or until almonds are golden, not brown. Remove and set aside. 

Steam the broccoli in a collapsible steamer, set up in a pot filled with 1 inch of water. Alternatively, place broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 4 minutes. Remove and add oil and salt and pepper, to taste. Toss well. Sprinkle almonds on top.
