How to bring it all together

  1. Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Toss tomatoes, olives, capers and 2 tsp olive oil in a bowl.
  3. Season chicken breasts on both sides with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Heat a large oven-proof skillet over high heat.  Once hot, add 2 tsp olive oil and sear chicken on both sides.

  6. Flip chicken and then add your tomato mixture to the skillet.
