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

This vibrant dish is so easy to prepare and is a crowd pleaser. Hope you love it!


  • 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!
