Pan-seared Chicken with sun-dried tomatoes and Olives

I love sun-dried tomatoes, feta and olives! I love including it in pasta dishes, pizza and chicken dishes. I made this a couple of weekends ago. I was at home with the little Miss and didn’t have a whole lot of time to spend in the kitchen, so I thought of a few things I could use to cook the chicken … especially that feta that really needed to be used… and this dish came together

Read through the recipe – its pretty easy … and it looks gorgeous when you plate it. It’s pretty delish too

Have a great week!

I love sun-dried tomatoes, feta and olives! I love including it in pasta dishes, pizza and chicken dishes. I made this a couple of weekends ago. I was at home with the little Miss and didn't have a whole lot of time to spend in the kitchen, so I thought of a few things I could use to cook the chicken ... especially that feta that really needed to be used... and this dish came together

Summary

    Ingredients

    4 – 6 chicken legs
    1 large onion slices
    2 cloves garlic mashed to a paste
    1 tsp thyme (fresh or dry)
    1/4 cup of sundried tomatoes chopped
    1/4 cup of chicken stock
    1/4 cup black olives
    Feta cheese crumbled
    to taste Salt and pepper
    Chopped Parsley for garnish
    2 tbsps oil

    Steps

    1. Remove the skin of the chicken and place in bowl, season with salt and pepper
    2. Heat the oil in a pan.  Add the chicken and  let it cook on one side, flip and let it cook on the other side too. Give it 5-7mins on each side and repeat. You want it to brown on both sides and cook through. I had the heat on medium low
    3. Add the onions, garlic, thyme and let it cook
    4. When the chicken was almost cooked through, I added the sundried tomatoes. If the pan starts to get real dry, add the chicken stock to loosen things up 🙂
    5. When the chicken is almost done, add the black olives
    6. Remove from the heat, and garnish with crumbled feta and the chopped parsley
    7. SERVE! This goes great with some mediterrean style couscous, a salad, a veggie stir fry, the options are endless
