Whip up a single-skillet chicken dinner

This simple, one-skillet dinner needs neither much time nor skill to deliver rich, deep flavors. And it all starts with that most ubiquitous of American meats – the boneless, skinless chicken breast.

Chicken Saltimbocca With Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Salt and ground black pepper

4 cloves garlic, minced

16 fresh sage leaves

8 slices prosciutto

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives, chopped

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Carefully slice each chicken breast in half horizontally to create 2 thin halves, then use paper towels to pat them dry. One at a time, place each piece of chicken between sheets of plastic wrap (spritz the top of each piece with cooking spray before adding the top piece of wrap), then use a meat mallet or rolling pin to gently pound to an even thickness, about 1/4 inch. Season each piece of chicken on both sides with salt and pepper, then scatter some of the minced garlic over one side of each piece of chicken.

Arrange 4 sage leaves over each piece of chicken, then top with 2 slices of prosciutto. With the prosciutto and sage on the inside, roll each piece of chicken into a tight bundle.

In a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high, heat the oil. Use tongs to carefully place each bundle, seam side down, in the skillet. Brown for 3 to 5 minutes, then turn and brown for another 3 to 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and olives to the skillet, then place in the oven and roast until the bundles reach 165 degrees at the center, about 10 to 12 minutes.

Serve the chicken with the roasted tomatoes and olives.
