Sicilian Chicken Casserole Recipe


Serves 4

2 tbsp olive oil

1 chicken, cut into 8 pieces 

400g chat baby potatoes, sliced 

5 garlic cloves

8 eshallots, peeled

1 cup green olives

½ bunch (about 12 sprigs) oregano 

⅓ cup dry white wine

¾ cup chicken stock

1 lemon, halved

Preheat oven to 180°C. Heat oil in a casserole dish over high heat. Add chicken and brown for 2-3 minutes on each side. Set aside. Add potatoes, garlic, and eschallots. Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until golden. Add chicken back to the casserole along with olives, oregano, wine, and stock. 

Squeeze lemon halves over and add lemons to pan. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cover and cook in the oven for 40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked. Increase oven temperature to 200°C, remove lid, and cook for another 10-15 minutes, or until golden and crisp.

TIPS: Sicilian olives are large green olives marinated in herbs; you can substitute Spanish manzanilla olives. Accompany with orzo pasta and Chianti, if you’re pouring wine.
