Chicken Fra Diavolo!


Hello Housewives!

This week I made a delectable dish that I named Chicken Fra Diavolo.  Part of my love for cooking is creating new dishes and thinking of ways to use what I have to make a tasty dish.  I believe a good cook can and should be able to improvise if needed.  I had a package of chicken cutlets as well as some green beans that I needed to use.  I love green beans marinara and figured I would combine the 2.  I took a little bit of this and a little bit of that and this dish was born!  It was really tasty and would definitely be a hit in a restaurant.  It’s also healthy and carb-free.  You get your meat and veggies all in one dish.

  • Chicken Cutlets (thin-sliced)
  • Gaeta Olives (small container)
  • Green Beans
  • 14.5 ounce can of Diced Tomatoes
  • 14.5 ounce can of Tomato Sauce
  • Red Pepper Flakes (a few shakes depending on how spicy you like it)
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste

In a small saucepan start your sauce.  Sauté garlic and oil and add a can of diced tomatoes and a can of tomato sauce and let cook on a low flame.  Stir in your Red Pepper Flakes.  Salt and Pepper as well.

Meanwhile, boil some salted water and when boiling add the green beans and blanche for a few minutes. Then drain and set aside.

Heat about a tablespoon of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil in a skillet.  When heated add the rinsed chicken cutlets and cook through on both sides, about 7 minutes.  When browned add your small container of Gaeta olives.  Then add your cooked sauce and green beans and mix all together.  Cook on low for about 10-15 minutes and serve!  Enjoy!
