One-Pan Chicken & Olives

One-Pan Chicken & Olives
Paula Nemzek for KCTS 9 Cooks

This one’s a keeper: no fuss, delicious and healthy! The flavors are a bit like Chicken Marbella; good enough for company and quick enough for a weeknight dinner.

Serves 4 to 5

  • 5 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of excess fat and cut in half
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided, plus extra for drizzling
  • 4 teaspoons curry powder, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3/4 cup unsulfured dried apricots, quartered, soaked in hot water for 5 minutes, and drained
  • 1 cup pitted green olives, halved

In a large, resealable plastic bag, combine prepared chicken thighs with 4 tablespoons olive oil, 2 teaspoons of curry powder, all the cayenne, 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika, all the cinnamon, the apple cider vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Seal the bag and shake to thoroughly coat the chicken. Let the chicken marinate in the fridge for at least 45 minutes and up to overnight, flipping occasionally to distribute the flavors.

When you're ready to cook, line an 11 x 17-inch rimmed sheet pan with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees, with the rack in the center position.

In a large bowl, place the cauliflower florets, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 teaspoons curry powder, 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika and 1/2 teaspoon salt, apricots and olives. Toss to combine, and spread out in a single layer on the sheet pan.

Place chicken thigh pieces over the cauliflower mixture, spacing them evenly. Drizzle about 1 tablespoon olive oil over the pan to prevent drying out while roasting. Discard any remaining marinade.

Roast at 425 degrees for about 40 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through, until cauliflower is browned at the edges and chicken is cooked through (165 degrees on an instant-read thermometer).

The chicken will be moist and tender. Add a tossed salad, and dinner is served!

I wish that you would make the printing of you recipes larger so as senior citizens could read them easily. Thank You

Hello Vance,

Thank you for sharing your concern! We take everyone's suggestions into account when altering our website settings. The request for a larger font size when printing has been submitted to our website developers, however, it should be noted that the font size was changed due to prior requests for the recipe to remain on one page only.

Thanks again, and please let us know if you have any other questions!

Looks good

I also, would love to see the size of the font several times larger on a print out. This has been requested before by myself and other viewers, but nothing has been done. Perhaps if you included a 'copy or print button' as a viewer above mentions, we could set the font size desired ourselves. PLEASE help those of us whose eyes may not be as good as yours.
