Chicken with Olives and Peppers

The above photo used 1 kg cut up chicken
(bone-in) and 1 pint cherry tomatoes
My Chicken with Olives and Peppers recipe has become a standard for dinner parties and the holidays. I always keep it in my back pocket for occasions when dinner is with a friend or family member who doesn't eat cilantro (one of my favourite flavours for Friday nights).

It's easy because it's one of those everything in one pan and in the oven dishes; the prep time is minimal (minus the waiting for the oven time) as well as the cleanup.

  1. This sounds delicious, thanks so much. I think the whole put in the pan and let it bake adds a great deal of pleasure as well, time for other things like visiting with guests or sipping a glass of wine.

  2. That's exactly what I do, actually!

    The kitchen is open enough that even when I'm stuck at the stove I can still speak to anyone at the dining room table or step away for a sec to pour a glass.

  4. This is a great sounding dish - and I love anything that is a "bung it all in one pan and let it do its own thing for an hour" kind of dish. I'm making this for sure.
