Balsamic Chicken with Olive and Caper Dressing
My take on this popular recipe using ingredients you probably already have one hand. I use boneless skinless chicken thighs but you could certainly sub in chicken breasts or bone-in chicken pieces.
Balsamic Chicken with Olive and Caper dressing
- 8-10 chicken thighs
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp turmeric
- salt and pepper
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2/3 cup green olives pitted
- 2 tbsp capers
- 2 cloves garlic crushed
- 1/2 cup parsley chopped
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put chicken thighs in a bowl, top with 2 tbsp olive oil, turmeric, salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Put chicken breasts onto a lined baking sheet. Pour balsamic vinegar onto chicken and place in oven, cook for 30 minutes.
- While chicken is cooking, make the olive dressing. Chop the olives and add to a medium bowl with capers and crush with a mallet. Add garlic, parsley, remaining olive oil and stir.
- Transfer cooked chicken to a serving platter. Add olive mix to the baking sheet and use a spatula to stir the dressing into the juices and leftover bits of chicken. Pour olive mix over the chicken and serve. So delicious!
