  1. Chicken and Olives – Shaken and Stirred

    Thu, 27 Mar 2014

    As I mention in the video, I’ve done almost 1,000 videos, and yet can’t remember ever featuring chicken and olives in one before. Considering how brilliant a combination they are, this is nothing short of astounding. I think there are a few in our famous arroz con pollo recipe , but as far as full co-star billing, this is the first time. Hopefully, it was worth the wait. For that to be the case, you should probably really like, if not love, olives. Their sharp, briny bite is the dominant flavor here, which is why it pairs so well with chicken breast. This one of those dishes where if you tasted the chicken and sauce separately, you probably wouldn’t be very impressed, but together – magic. Any pitted olives will work, but the Kalamata and Castelvetrano varieties are highly recommended. Luckily, most every large grocery now has an olive bar somewhere, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding them. Speaking of finding products, you may actually have a harder time locating the Herbs De Provence. We haven’t used this Mediterranean dried-herb blend in a while, and if you can find it, it’s worth picking up a bottle. Trust me, you’ll use the rest this grilling season. If you can’t find any, you can always make your own, and I’ve listed the ingredients below. Anyway, if you’ve been looking for a new chicken recipe, especially one with olives in it, then I hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy! Ingredients: 4 boneless, skin-on chicken breasts salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste 2 tsp Herbs De Provence (the brand I used contained dried chervil, basil, rosemary, tarragon, garlic, lavender, marjoram , savory, thyme, and parsley) 2 tbsp olive oil 1/4 cup sliced shallots 1 cup sliced olives 1 cup chicken broth 1 lemon, juiced 2 tbsp reserved Kalamata olive brine 1/2 tsp cumin zest from one lemon 2 tbsp Italian parsley 2 tbsp cold butter, cut in 4 pieces
