This weeknight dinner is perfect for everyone in the family. It's a healthy spin on some of our favorite asian-style meals--but using EVOO! Try it out with a oven roasted veggies, polenta, or rice as a side. 

 

INGREDIENTS (serves 4)

8 large chicken tenders (or 4 chicken thighs, skinless, bone-in)

--- sea salt

--- freshly ground pepper

3 TBSP. Kosterina extra virgin olive oil

5 large baby carrots, cut in half

1 small onion, chopped

2-3 med. garlic cloves

⅔ cup orange juice

½ tsp cumin

¼ cup black or green olives, pitted and cut in half

1 TBSP. fresh parsley, minced

1 TBSP. Kosterina extra virgin olive oil

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Pat dry the chicken and season both sides generously with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large, deep skillet, over medium-high heat, pour the olive oil and when hot add the chicken. Cook for about 4 minutes per site or until the chicken pieces get a nice, golden color. Remove to a bowl and reserve.
  3. Reduce the heat and add the carrots and the onion. Cook, stirring frequently for about 6-7 minutes. Next, add the garlic and cook for one more minute. Pour the orange juice over the vegetables, add the cumin and bring to a low boil. Scrape the bottom of the pan to loosen up bits that might be stuck.
  4. Return the reserved chicken and the accumulated juices to the skillet and add the olives as well. Cover and reduce the heat to a medium-low. Simmer the chicken for about 30 minutes or until the chicken is tender, adding some warm water to loosen up the pan sauce. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Sprinkle with fresh parsley, drizzle with some extra Kosterina extra virgin olive oil and serve.
