Chicken With White Wine and Olives

Use any combination of chicken pieces you like - I used two breasts and two leg quarters. This was delicious served with root vegetables and the extra pan sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Rinse chicken pieces and pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and brown on both sides, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove chicken from skillet and transfer to a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  3. Add shallots and garlic cloves to skillet and saute 1 to 2 minutes. Add wine, scraping up any brown bits from the pan. Add minced garlic, herbs and olives and simmer for 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and simmer for 1 to 2 minutes more. Pour wine mixture over chicken and cover with foil.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes, turning chicken once.
