DIRECTIONS

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