In a skillet sprayed with nonstick vegetable cooking spray, over medium-high heat, add olive oil. When heated, add chicken pieces and minced garlic. Brown chicken, and cook 3 to 4 minutes, until done. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside. Add to the skillet red onion, red and green bell peppers, basil and sliced zucchini. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until zucchini is tender. Add back chicken pieces, white cooking wine, diced tomatoes, and sliced calamata olives. Stir well and cook 2 more minutes to heat through. Serve vegetable chicken mixture over hot cooked linguine noodles. Makes 1 serving.
