5 boneless skinless chicken thighs

kosher salt, as desired

freshly ground black pepper, as desired

2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more if needed

1/4 cup dry white wine, like sauvignon blanc

1/4 cup low-sodium chicken stock

7.     Transfer to preheated 425ºF oven and cook until chicken is cooked through (165ºF internal temperature), and juices run clear, approximately 10 – 12 minutes.

8.     Remove from oven, cover skillet with foil and allow chicken to rest in the pan for 5 minutes before serving.

9.     To serve, divide chicken among servings plates and top with olives and a drizzle of sauce right before enjoying. Note: Discard the garlic and rosemary.


Kitchen Note:  If you want a pan sauce, remove the chicken and use the pan drippings as your base!
