  • 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

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Generously sprinkle the salt and pepper all over the chicken breasts.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Serve as is or over a bed of pasta.
