  1. Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of cling film or greaseproof paper. Using a meat tenderising hammer, pound each breast to about 1cm (1/2 in) thick.
  2. In a large frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Briefly cook chicken breasts in oil, turning to lightly brown both sides. Add garlic and rosemary, and continue cooking until garlic is soft. Pour wine into pan, and cover pan with lid. Bring to a boil, and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes and olives to the pan; continue cooking, covered, for approximately 10 minutes. Serve with crusty bread and salad.

yummy - simple and easy. i added the tomatoes only minutes before the end of the cook time so they wouldn't turn to mush and rubbed the chicken with salt and pepper before browning. - 23 Jan 2010
