Prep time 5 Min | Cook Time 50 Min | Serves 4-6


  • 8 Chicken Thighs
  • 1 Yellow Onion, chopped
  • 1 can Petite Diced Tomatoes (14.5 oz)
  • 1 cup Imported Greek Seasoned Pitted Olives, drained and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Dry White Wine
  • 1/4 cup 00 Flour
  • 1/2 jar Roasted Peppers (12 oz), drained
  • 2 tbsp Imported Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • Season flour with salt and pepper.
  • Dredge chicken in flour, patting-off any excess.
  • Heat oil on medium-high in a large, lidded skillet or Dutch oven.
  • Sauté the chicken until golden brown for approximately 5 minutes, in batches if necessary so as not to crowd the pan.
  • Remove chicken from pan and set aside, draining any excess oil from pan.
  • Turn heat to medium; sauté onions, garlic, and crushed red pepper, if desired, until onions are softened.
  • Add white wine and rosemary; cook about 2 minutes until wine evaporates.
  • Increase heat to medium-high; add tomatoes, olives and peppers to pan, cook for about 2 minutes to blend flavors.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add reserved chicken, salt, pepper, and any accumulated juices.
  • Cook about 30-40 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
  • Transfer to serving platter and pour sauce over top.
