Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 skin-on, boneless chicken breast halves
¼ teaspoon each salt & pepper, or to taste
4 cloves garlic, slivered
3 tablespoons drained capers
¾ cup dry white wine
Juice of one lemon
3-4 sprigs fresh thyme
1 jar PEARLS Specialties Garlic Stuffed Olives

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Generously sprinkle the salt and pepper all over the chicken breasts.
In a cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken, skin-side down, and cook until the skin is brown and crispy, 5-7 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate skin side up.
In the same pan, add the garlic and capers, and cook, stirring, until the garlic begins to lightly brown, about 1 minute. Add the wine, lemon juice, fresh thyme, and olives and stir. Nestle the chicken into the pan, skin side up and bake 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
Serve as is or over a bed of pasta.
