  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • vegetable oil
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast half
  • 1 medium green pepper , cut into 2-inch-long strips (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 medium onion , sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup diced cooked ham
  • 1/4 cup Chianti or other dry red wine (optional)
  • 2 cup Prego® Chunky Garden Combination Italian Sauce
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pimento-stuffed olive
  • 1 cup regular long-grain white rice , prepared according to package directions (about 3 cups)


  • Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 10 minutes or until well browned on both sides. Remove the chicken from the skillet.
  • Add the pepper, onion and ham to the skillet and cook until the ham is browned and the vegetables are tender-crisp.  Stir in the wine, if desired, and cook and stir for 2 minutes.
  • Stir the sauce and olives in the skillet and heat to a boil.  Return the chicken to the skillet.  Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.  Serve the chicken and sauce with the rice.
