Chop all veggies – except potatoes, olives & red peppers, into bite sized pieces and set aside. Boil potatoes until fork tender (about 10 minutes). Set aside to cool. Place chicken breasts in plastic food storage bag & tenderize meat using a mallet or small heavy fry pan. Do this for about 5 minutes, until breasts are about ¼ inch thick.

Take out of bag and cut chicken into strips about 1 inch or into bite sized pieces. Place back in bag and add salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, basil, parsley and cumin. Shake to coat. On medium heat, place 2 tablespoons oil in small sauté pan. Add sliced cloves of garlic and sauté until you smell the aroma of garlic – do not brown! Add chicken to pan & sauté for about 10 minutes until slightly browned. Remove from heat.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In casserole dish place 2 tablespoons oil on bottom. Add chicken and top with cut up vegetables, leaving olives & red peppers until the end of recipe.

Garnish with sliced olives, roasted red peppers, parsley & paprika . Bake at 350 degrees utill bubbling and golden, approximately 20 minutes.
