Weeknights can get crazy hectic in our house, and sometimes it's a struggle to get dinner on the table. These are the times I love having one-pan dinners that can be whipped up in no time. Spiced Chicken with Olives and Lemons is exactly what I'm looking for on a busy weeknight.
It all comes together in one pan. It's sweet from the caramelized onions, tangy from the lemon juice, and it gets a briney punch from the olives. Chloe could eat an entire jar of olives in one sitting, so for my girl, I've included an entire jar in this recipe. (I just have to make sure I have extra on hand for her to munch on!)
If you haven't yet tasted castelvetrano olives, this is the perfect time to try them. They're gorgeous bright green and taste like the best parts of a green olive and a black olive mixed together. This dish is perfect on its own, but also goes great with some crusty bread, perfect brown rice, or pasta.
If you make this recipe, I'd love to see it! Tag @weelicious on social media. And tell me what you think of the olives if this is your first time trying them!
