This was published in the July 29, 1998 issue of the Los Angeles Times in
an article called, "Quick Fix" by Janet McCracken. She suggests that
arugula and fresh spinach are good mixed with other greens in this salad.

1. Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste (add salt carefully because
olives and capers will add saltiness).

2. Heat large skillet over medium high heat and add olive oil. When oil is
hot and smoky, add chicken and saut?until cooked through and juices run
clear when pricked with fork, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet
and set aside.

3. Add tomatoes with juice to skillet. Add garlic and simmer 5 minutes. Add
capers, olives and oregano and simmer 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Taste
and adjust seasoning.

4. Add reserved chicken and toss to coat with sauce. Let sit 5 minutes,
stirring occasionally to release steam, until cooled slightly.

5. Put greens in large bowl and toss with chicken mixture. Serve
