Bright-green Castelvetrano olives hail from Sicily and have a buttery flavor and meaty texture that pair perfectly with the Italian seasoning and salty capers in this one-skillet chicken dinner. Look for them on your supermarket olive bar or in jars with Italian ingredients.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mash garlic with 1/4 teaspoon salt with a fork to form a paste. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon oil, Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper.

  • Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned on both sides, 6 to 8 minutes total. Transfer the chicken to a plate and top with the garlic mixture.

  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in the pan over medium heat. Add potatoes and carrots and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables begin to brown and stick to the pan, 6 to 8 minutes. Add tomatoes, wine, olives and capers; cook, stirring and scraping up any browned bits, for 1 minute. Nestle the chicken into the pan, cover and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part without touching the bone registers 165 degrees F, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve garnished with parsley, if desired.

Simple recipe yielded deeper flavor result than expected! I did stir in about 1tsp of chicken demi-glaze when I nestled the thighs in w/the vegetables. Terrific the next day as would be expected with an Italian dish. I believe this dish would freeze well too. Read More

My family loved this one-pot meal. I ll make it again on the regular. Perfect in a big le Creuset pot. I especially thought the garlic herb slurry topping added a lot and was worth the effort. This took about 45 min not 25 but so delish. Read More
