Chicken Escalopes with Olive, Caper & Tomato dressing
January 13, 2012 in Uncategorized
Chicken features on our menu at least twice a week and as I’ve said before, after the 100th time of trying to cook it differently, it becomes hard to get creative! Especially during the summer months when being in a hot kitchen is about as appealing as a full body wax (well for me anyway).
Knowing I had to develop a recipe using Mediterranean Delicacies’ Calamata Style Olives, I wanted to keep whatever I was going to make fresh, light and perfect for Summer eating. I wanted the olives to have a starring roll and thought the chicken would be the perfect, simple backdrop.
This dressing is quite amazing. It is such a pleasure to eat as the salt, almost-bitter olives paired with sharp and vinegary capers and sweet cherry tomatoes just work so well together. I had to stop myself from eating spoonfulls straight out of the bowl before dinner. I added lemon juice, olive oil and fresh parsley to make it into a ‘dressing’ and served on top of the warm chicken escalopes, it was just delightful!
