Dust the chicken with the flour and cook in the oil 1 minute on each side. Then put on a plate, cover with foil or a pan lid, and keep at room temperature. Start steaming the vegetables. Put the garlic and anchovy in the not-too-hot pan and cook for 30 seconds. Add the wine. Cook and stir up the brown bits until the wine is almost gone. Add the tomatoes, chicken stock and olives. Cook the sauce until it is a little thicker. Put the chicken back into the pan until it is warm. Plate with the vegetables. This cooks quickly so you won’t have to wait long to eat it — but savor it slowly and enjoy all the rich flavors.
