Directions:
Brown the chicken breasts over moderate heat in a heavy 12-inch skillet that has been lightly coated with cooking spray about 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.
Add the olive oil, onion, and garlic to the skillet and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the red pepper and cook for 5 minutes, then add the zucchini and cook 5 minutes longer. Transfer the vegetables to the bowl with the chicken. Raise the heat to moderately high and cook the eggplant for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden.
Return the chicken and vegetables to the skillet and add the tomatoes, basil, thyme, oregano, and olives. Lower the heat to moderate, cover and cook for 15 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink. Transfer to a heated platter, sprinkle with parsley and serve!
