What's for dinner - Martini Chicken

Here's what I'm cooking for dinner tonight.  It is way more delicious than I thought when I first read the recipe.  It doesn't really taste like a martini, but you do have to like olives.  And thanks to an over-the-counter miracle pill called Prelief, I can eat it!

The original recipe comes from but I never follow any recipe exactly.

A little olive oil
Some type of chicken or turkey.  I am cooking a big turkey breast in the crockpot and then using chunks of that for the recipe.
Black peper
2 Tbsp butter
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped, or dried chopped garlic is ok too.
1/4 to 1/2 cup gin
Spash dry vermouth
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup sliced green olives with pimentos

Just saute everything together until the sauce has reduced.

*Note:  You can substitute dry vermouth for any recipe that calls for white wine.  It is pretty inexpensive and the bottle looks classy on the counter.  I bought it for some dumb reason and it's pretty gross by itself but great for for cooking.

We should get together one night and you can bring the Martini Chicken and I'll bring the Bourbon Slush. We'd probably have a pretty good night after that. : )
