    Directions:

    1. 1
      Oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, mix the feta, butter, rosemary and pepper to taste together.
    3. 3
      Using your fingers and a spoon, push the feta mixture under the skin of the chicken parts (except the wing), being gentle to avoid ripping the skin.
    4. 4
      Put some stuffing under the tenderloin portion of the breast.
    5. 5
      Season all parts well with salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      Heat an oven-proof dutch oven or a very deep oven proof skillet over medium heat until it's very hot.
    7. 7
      Add the olive oil and sear the chicken pieces, skin side down, until the skin is golden brown, about 4 minutes per piece.
    8. 8
      Transfer the chicken to a plate, drain off the fat, and deglaze the pan with the wine and the broth.
    9. 9
      Return the chicken to the pan (skin side up), add the olives, and put the skillet in the oven.
    10. 10
      Bake until the juices run clear when pricked with a fork, about 40 minutes.
    11. 11
      Transfer the chicken and olives to a warm plate.
    12. 12
      Boil the juices over high heat until they reduce and thicken enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 4 minutes.
    13. 13
      Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve with orzo or some other small pasta shape.

      I love both feta cheese and chicken, so a recipe that combines both just can't go wrong. This one was better than great - beautiful in appearance and wonderfully flavorful! I took your suggestion, PetitFour, and served it with orzo - a great combination. The only change I would make next time is to brown the chicken in my nonstick skillet. The stainless skillet did make a wonderfully brown sauce, but the chicken skin stuck slightly and spilled some of the feta. Thanks for a GREAT recipe!
