Serving Size

  • Serves 4 people


  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1 cup red seedless grapes, halved
  • 1 cup green olives, pitted
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare the Ingredients:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • Rinse the chicken thighs and pat them dry with paper towels.
    • Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Sear the Chicken:
    • Heat the olive oil in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat.
    • Add the chicken thighs skin-side down and sear until the skin is golden and crispy, about 5-7 minutes.
    • Flip the chicken thighs and cook for another 3 minutes. Remove the chicken and set aside.
  3. Cook the Aromatics:
    • In the same skillet, reduce the heat to medium.
    • Add the minced garlic and chopped rosemary, cooking until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Combine and Roast:
    • Add the grapes, olives, and lemon zest to the skillet and stir to combine.
    • Place the chicken thighs back into the skillet, nestling them into the grape and olive mixture.
    • Drizzle the lemon juice over the chicken and transfer the skillet to the preheated oven.
    • Roast until the chicken is fully cooked and the juices run clear, about 25-30 minutes.
  5. Final Touches:
    • Remove from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
    • Garnish with additional fresh rosemary if desired.
