Drain Chicken when ready to cook. Pat dry if grilling.

Grill chicken for about 10 minutes-5 minutes on each side--or you can bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.

Place chicken on a platter or individual plates and spoon over remaining marinade and sprinkle with cheese and olives and some freshly ground pepper.

*if you want extra "sauce" you can boil the drained marinade for 5 minutes and ad to reserved marinade.
