Chicken Breast with Orange, Olives and New Potatoes

I made Chicken Breast with Orange, Olives and New Potatoes

Recipe courtesy Tyler Florence

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 large chicken breasts, split in half down the middle – skin on
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup medium black olives, pitted
  • 1/2 orange, sliced into round circles
  • 4 large new potatoes, skin-on, 1/4-inch thick-sliced
  • 1/4 bunch flat leaf parsley, for garnish

METHOD:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Set a large oven-proof pan over medium heat and add a 3-tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Season breasts all-over with plenty of salt and pepper then add to the pan skin-side down. Cook for 7-8 minutes until the skin is nice and golden then turn breasts over and add potatoes, orange slices and olives evenly over and around the pan. Drizzle with a little more olive oil and shake the pan around a little so everything get’s coated nicely with the oil and chicken juices – this also helps settle everything into place. Cook for about 5 minutes on the stove-top until you get a little color on the potatoes. Season once more with salt and pepper then pop the whole pan in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley stems.
