  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes

  • 1 (6 ounce) can medium pitted ripe olives, drained

  • ¾ cup dry white wine

  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried oregano


  1. Season both sides of the chicken thighs with salt and pepper.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add garlic and saute until it begins to brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Place chicken thighs in the hot skillet with the nicer, more intact sides facing down. Sear for 2 minutes. Flip and sear the split sides for 2 minutes.

  3. Add stewed tomatoes, olives, wine, and oregano. Reduce heat to medium-low (4 on a scale of 10), cover, and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can use fresh oregano if preferred.

You can add a can of tomato paste to the liquid in the pan if you wish to make a pasta sauce out of it.
