Chicken With Tomatoes, Olives and Fennel

Chicken With Tomatoes, Olives and Fennel created by Chef floWer

Easy dinner to make ahead and just reheat, but also a quick put together meal. But using good Greek olives and fennel are a must for this dish. Now, I like to use bone in/skin on thighs and breasts for this to get a good color for this dish. I have also used chicken quarters as well cut up which is an option. And if you don't like fennel, try cooking or baking it, it is a whole different flavor. Perfect simple food. I serve this with a good Pinot Noir, a simple spinach salad with a lemon vinaigrette and some grilled pita bread.

ingredients

directions

  • Chicken -- In a large saute pan (I prefer cast iron or stainless, NOT non-stick), add the olive oil and bring to medium heat. Add the chicken and brown all sides until golden brown. Remove to a plate, with a paper towel to drain.
  • Vegetables -- In the same pan, add the fennel, onion and garlic and cook until lightly brown. Add the white wine, tomatoes, fennel fronds, salt and pepper and bring to a boil.
  • Chicken -- Add the chicken back in to the pan, reduce to a simmer, and cook until the chicken is tender. It should take about 30 minutes. Add the olives right at the end just to heat through.
  • Serve -- Serve the dish family style with some toasted or grilled pita, your favorite salad and fresh lemon wedges. Just squeeze the lemon wedge on each serving for a great taste.

    I has to tweak the recipe because of allergies. I used the green part of spring onions instead of a large onion and I left the garlic out also because of allergies.
