To make it, I start by seasoning boneless, skinless chicken breasts with my Italian seasoning mix and then quickly browning each side in a little olive oil in my skillet. Then, I remove the chicken to a plate and make the marinara sauce right in the same skillet!

This flavorful dish is excellent served over pasta or mashed potatoes, but I especially love it over spiralized zucchini! It makes a filling, healthy meal that everyone loves! It works perfectly for families following a Paleo, Whole 30, as well as a gluten and dairy-free lifestyle!

  1. Robyn,
    Another delicious recipe, I made it for dinner after I got home from work so it was easy as well, the husband loved it also!!
    Thanks!

  2. I fixed this for “lupper”, and it was divine plus easy as well. Love skillet dinners!

  3. I’ve been on such a chicken kick this summer. Adding this to the menu. I love all the seasonings. Great flavors!

  4. When you say tomato sauce, do you mean.Pasta sauce?

  5. This looks & sounds delicious. I too love skillet dishes & “supper.” I’m sorry to say I’m not a fan of olives…will flavor be lost if I omit them, or do you recommend a substitute?

  6. I changed my dinner plans for last night and made this for my family. LOVE. 5 stars. Served it with couscous and cucumber salad for more Mediterranean flair. It’s a keeper and going into regular rotation. Thanks for a great recipe!

  7. The mediterranean chicken and pasta is the best dish that my bf can cook for me (well, actually as an Italian, he cooks well a bunch of pasta styles 😂) Aw, I will ask him to cook this tonight 😄
