  1. Deseed and finely slice the pepper, and crush the garlic.
  2. Put the flour onto a plate, season with pepper, and roll each chicken breast in it until lightly coated.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan, add the chicken and fry gently for 15-20 minutes, turning regularly, until golden brown on both sides. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  4. Add the garlic and peppers to the pan and fry gently for 3 minutes.
  5. Stir in the tomatoes, scraping the base of the pan to release the crusty bits, and add the olives.
  6. Return the chicken to the pan, cover and simmer gently for 10 minutes.

Crisply cooked green beans go well with this dish.
