  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400 °F.

    Spray a skillet with cooking spray and warm over medium heat. Cook the chicken breast for 4 minutes on each side. Remove from skillet and shred the chicken with a fork. Set aside.

    Stir in the green pepper, black pepper, raisins, and olives.

    Spoon the mixture into an 8" × 8" baking dish. (If you prefer, divide the mixture into four servings and bake in four small ovenproof bowls.) Arrange the chicken on top of the mixture in the dish.
