8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 ½ cups olive oil

4 tablespoons butter

10 cloves of garlic, chopped

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Flour for dredging

Lisa’s Chicken Aglio e Olio Directions:

Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large sauté pan with ½ a cup of the olive oil. Sauté the chicken breasts until they are golden on each side.

Transfer the chicken breasts to a 13 x 9 casserole. Add the remaining olive oil and chopped garlic into the sauté pan and sauté until the garlic is softened but not brown. Add the crushed red pepper.
