Mediterranean Chicken With Olives, Tomatoes and Artichoke Hearts

Mediterranean Chicken with olives

One Pan Mediterranean Chicken and Olives Recipe 

This savory, low-carb Mediterranean Chicken with Olives recipe is infused with delicious artichoke hearts, briny olives, sweet caramelized onions, white wine, oregano, and feta.  It comes together in one pan in under 30 minutes and uses mostly pantry staples in addition to fresh chicken breasts and tomatoes.    

Sheet pan meals are a staple in my household because they are so easy to prepare and once in the oven you can walk away and do something fun like read a book, or catch up on your favorite show. 

Right?

Who am I kidding – it gives me time to clean the kitchen, fold laundry, and help kids with homework.   But clean-up is a cinch and dinner is on the table in 30 minutes with minimal prep – so that’s a win!

This recipe came together as I was trying to use up all the jars of manzanilla olives in my pantry.  Every time Safeway has the Lindsay olives on sale, I always stock up and at times forget that I already have a few jars or cans in the pantry. 

The olives are on sale this week as is chicken so it was the perfect time to create a new recipe!

We are absolutely an olive family – I am Greek and it’s in my blood.  All three of my kids and my hubby love olives too, so I love using them in recipes.  

I may have told this story before in another recipe – but as a toddler, I joined my mom in a visit to the Greek market that used to be located in downtown Denver.   

As we left and were driving home on the highway, suddenly the pungent scent of olives hit my mom’s nose and she looked in the rearview mirror to find her 2-year-old with a mouthful of Kalamata olives and more in my hands.  They were not pitted, so she was terrified that I would choke on the pit.   

Obviously, I survived – but the point is that my love of olives started at a young age. 

 

Ingredients in Chicken and Olives Recipe

I used Open Nature Air Chilled Chicken in this recipe.  In fact, that’s the only chicken I buy from Safeway because my family prefers it.  It’s so tender and gives a delicious chicken flavor.  I highly recommend it.  

  • 1.5 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • garlic, minced
  • 6 oz black olives (3/4 cup)
  • 3/4 cup Manzanilla olives
  • 3/4 cup cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 6 oz marinated artichoke hearts, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup white wine

Preheat the oven to 375°

Slice the chicken breasts in half lengthwise to have 1/4 inch thin chicken pieces.

Place the chicken on the sheet pan and add sliced onions, minced garlic, olives, capers, artichoke hearts, and tomatoes to the pan.   Top with crumbled feta cheese. 

Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and oregano.  Add white wine to the pan.

I used a sheet pan, but you also use a pyrex baking dish to braise the chicken in the wine and olive oil. 

Bake at 375° for 25 minutes until the chicken reaches 165° and the onions are soft and caramelized and the tomatoes are perfectly roasted.

My kiddos were the taste testers of this recipe and my son said there are so many flavors in this dish, I love it.  My daughters were scraping the pan for the onions and olives, they could not get enough.  I hope you like it too!
