Chicken with Olives



* Substitute green olives if you can't find Greek-style black olives.


  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Coat with flour and shake off excess.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a wide skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Add chicken thighs and cook for 5 minutes; they should be golden.
  5. Turn the thighs and cook for 5 minutes more.
  6. Remove chicken to a plate.
  7. Add onion and garlic to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes, until softened.
  8. Add chicken broth. Bring to a boil over high heat and add chicken back to pan. Lower heat and boil gently for about 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and the liquid is quite reduced and sauce-like.
  9. While the chicken cooks, pit olives if necessary. Chop and add to pan.
