Quick Skillet Italian Chicken

As I look at this picture I realize that it doesn't look all that appetizing. Please don't let that deter you from making this dish. It is so easy and tastes delicious. Maybe one of these days I will work on making better pictures.

Quick Skillet Italian Chicken

4 frozen chicken breasts
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup green or yellow bell pepper, chopped
14 1/2 oz can Italian style stewed tomatoes
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1 12 oz pkg. Fettuccine (or other pasta)
2 Tbs. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup black olives, pitted & sliced

Heat olive oil over medium high heat in large skillet. Add frozen chicken in single layer & saute 3 min. on each side or until lightly brown. Add onion, bell pepper, stewed tomatoes & lemon juice. Cover and simmer 25-30 min. or until chicken is no longer pink inside. While chicken is cooking, prepare fettuccine, according to package directions. Keep warm. When chicken is ready to serve, divide pasta among 4 dinner plates. Top with chicken breasts & tomato sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and sliced olives.
