Italian Chicken & Olive Stew

Oliver’s gourmet cheese department may be known for its absolutely massive selection of gourmet cheeses from around the world, but did you know they also run our gourmet olive bar? Yes indeed, and this week only, we’ve dropped the prices on the entire olive bar – you heard right, “olive” it! This stew is full of warm, comforting flavors, perfect for the start of cold weather season – briny green olives add a pop of both color and flavor, while red peppers and potatoes round everything out. It’s perfect for a filling dinner on a cold, autumn night!

*Prices valid through 11/19/19.

  1. Season chicken thighs thoroughly with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot until hot, then sear chicken thighs in batches until browned; remove from pot and drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Remove excess fat from pan, leaving about 1 tablespoon; saute onions, garlic, and peppers in fat until veggies have softened slightly and garlic is fragrant.

  2. Return chicken to pan and add carrots, olives, thyme, rosemary, bay leaves, chicken stock, white wine, and tomatoes. Stir to combine, then cover and cook for 20 minutes. Add potatoes and cook uncovered for additional 15 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.

  3. Add fresh parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil before serving.
