Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Place the chicken skin side up in an oven-proof baking dish. Add garlic, olives and tomatoes on top of and around the meat.
  2. Drizzle with a generous amount of olive oil. Sprinkle with thyme and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place in the oven and roast until the chicken is fully cooked through. It should take about 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of the pieces. If you feel unsure, check internal temperature with a meat thermometer. The chicken is cooked through when the temperature reaches 180°F (75°C).
  4. Serve with salad and mayo flavored with lemon zest and paprika or a mild chili and some salt and pepper.

Tip!

If you prefer to use canned tomatoes, that works well, too. And the garlic is optional… feel free to omit or substitute chopped shallots or sliced onion.

    I really wanted to love this and I really didn't. The oven temp is not high enough to crisp the chicken skin, so you'll end up with edible but somewhat chewy skin. The tomatoes were really good and the dinner smelled delicious, it was just kind of meh. It's definitely missing something, but I can't figure out what! Bummer
