  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken tenderloins or breasts cut lengthwise
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 6 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 white onion sliced
  • 1/2 red onion sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper sliced into thin strips

Instructions

  • Dry your chicken on both sides with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add in chicken and cook each side until brown, about 2-3 minutes per side or until nearly cooked through. Remove chicken from the skillet and set aside.
