Chicken with Olives for 5 Ingredients or Less #SundaySupper

#SundaySupper is doing 5 Ingredients of Less today!! Easy meals with little mess. We are allowed water, salt, pepper, and oil as “freebies” and they do not count as ingredients.

Okay, go!! My brain started whirling with yummy ingredients and I stopped on chicken and olives for some reason. Delicious crispy chicken with the addition of slightly salty black olives. This dish was super easy and so delicious. Ken raved about the olives and parsley with the chicken and loved it!!

Crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. This makes a perfect weekday meal or #SundaySupper without the fuss.

The chicken roasts on the outside and poaches in the delightful garlic butter that seeps into the bottom, DELISH!!

    Crispy on the outside, tender inside? Looks like perfection to this Ninja Baker =)

    Quick question: If I used white meat / chicken breasts, what do you think the cooking time might be?

    • says

      Depending on the size of the breast I think they would take the same amount of time. You could cut each breast in half so they aren’t such a large serving and they would be the same size as a chicken thigh. Always check with a good thermometer for doneness. Thanks so much Kim.

    My coconut pie recipe is back on the blog. Thanks for pointing out its absence…a casualty from upgrading WP and having no editing ability while ZipList was installed! Glad that was fixed!

    Tara, I HAD to comment on your delectable dish. The photo captured my attention immediately; the 5 ingredients aspect (and list of so many others!) made me bookmark it right now. Thank you. Looks & sounds wonderful!

    Oh wow – this dish looks absolutely wonderful! I personally love olives, but they are one of the VERY few things my husband doesn’t like. What?!?! Perhaps I should make this just so I could get double the olives on my plate! 😉

    Crispy on the outside is how I love my chicken! Your chicken with olives is beautiful. I’ve never had chicken and olives together but I would really like to give it a try.
