2 tablespoons olive oil

3 large shallots, chopped

4 boneless chicken breast halves, with skin

2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary leaves or 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crumbled

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes with juice

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

1 cup crumbled feta

1/2 cup chopped brine-cured black olives (such as Kalamata)


  1. In a heavy large skillet set over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add shallots and cook, stirring, about 3 minutes. Season chicken with rosemary, salt and pepper. Add chicken, skin side down, to skillet and cook for 5 minutes, or until skin is browned. Turn chicken over, add tomatoes, including juice and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until chicken is just cooked through, about 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Transfer chicken to serving plate. Boil sauce over high heat until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add cheese and olives and simmer, stirring, until heated through. Spoon sauce over chicken and garnish with rosemary sprigs.
