CHICKEN WITH ROASTED ASPARAGUS AND OLIVE TAPENADE

Tool:
Frying pan, sheet pan, and mixing bowl. Read the entire recipe first then chop all vegetables

Ingredients:

  • 1 to 2 shallots
  • 1 lemon
  • Fresh flat leaf parsley (handful)
  • Fresh thyme (2 or 3 springs)
  • 6 oz asparagus
  • 2 6 oz boneless chicken breasts
  • 1t sweet smoked paprika
  • Olive tapenade (1/4 c Kalamata olives, 1/4 c green olives, 1/4 c capers, 1 garlic minced, oil, pepper)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


Prep & Cook:


Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Peel the shallots and cut into 1/4 inch thick rings. Cut the lemon in half; juice one half and cut the other half into 1/4 inch thick half-moons. Finely chop the parsley and thyme leaves.

On a sheet pan, drizzle the asparagus, shallots, lemon slices and thyme with 2T oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Spread in an even layer and roast until the vegetables are slightly charred and the asparagus is tender 18 to 20 minutes.

While the asparagus is cooking, pat the chicken dry and season with salt, pepper, and the paprika. In a pan over medium heat, warm 2T oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken, skin-side down and cook, turning once, until the skin is browned and chicken is cooked through, 6 to 7 minutes per side.

In a bowl, mix the olive tapenade and parsley with 1t lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Transfer the chicken and asparagus to individual plates. Garnish with the olive tapenade and serve.

This is a gluten-free dish.

Two brothers, Josh and Nate, fought hard to keep their 125-year-old and family owned olive orchard. After succeeding, they worked relentlessly to learn the business as well as being great stewards of Mother Earth by taking great care of their trees. This paid off, as the olives are giving back and each bottle the brothers produced has won an international award. The latest is a GOLD AWARD at the 2018 NYIOOC (largest olive oil competition in the world) for their Early Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Both brothers are highly committed to bringing you the very best, all 100% natural olive oils from farm to your table - all made right here in the USA.
