    Roasted Chicken with Tangerines and Olives


    Now, you all know I am a huge fan of EveryDay Food Magazine. Really, Martha, what were you thinking by getting rid of our beloved little digest!?

    And there has never really been a recipe I tried from EveryDay Food that I haven’t liked … until now. I think it’s just a matter of taste as I am sure many have tried this and loved it, but the brininess of the olives and the sweetness of the tangerines … well, YUCK. It just didn’t work for me. That and someone around here does not like olives. That should have been my first clue.

    It may work for you.

    • 1 whole organic chicken, cut into pieces
    • salt and pepper
    • 3 tangerines, unpeeled, quartered
    • 2 T tangerine juice
    • 2/3 C pitted green olives 4 oz
    • 4 large garlic cloves, crushed
    • 2 T honey


    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Ready for oven

    Arrange chicken pieces on a rimmed baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Add tangerines and olives and garlic to pan. Roast 30 minutes.

    NOTE: I used only thighs.

    Whisk together juice and honey. Remove pan from oven and brush chicken with juice mixture. Return to oven for another 10-15 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.

    NOTE: If I make this again, I’ll skip the olives and perhaps add in fennel, or something that better compliments the tangerines.

    1. What a great combo. Always like a great new chicken dish.

    2. I bet the tangerines gave it such a nice brightness!
