Sheet Pan Chicken


3-4 lbs bone-in, skin-on chicken legs and thighs
1 tsp Kosher salt
⅓ cup white wine
1 cup chicken stock
1 tbsp capers, drained
⅓ cup pitted green olives, halved
⅓ cup pitted prunes, chopped coarse
1-2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp butter, cold
2 tbsp fresh parsley, minced

Paste Marinade

1/3 cup pitted green olives (about 13)
1/3 cup pitted prunes (about 8)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, peeled
2 tbsp capers
1 tsp dried oregano
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp kosher salt
¼ cup white wine


1. Heat oven to 400°F (make sure the oven rack is centered)

2. Make the paste/marinade by pulsing 1/3 cup pitted green olives, 1/3 cup pitted prunes, 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, 4 garlic cloves, 2 tablespoons capers, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, ½ teaspoon pepper, ½ teaspoon kosher salt and ¼ cup white wine in food processor about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to bowl. (Paste can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours.)

3. Use the paste to marinate the chicken, by coating it completely in the paste mixture.
Place chicken on a rimmed sheet pan. Pour white wine and chicken stock onto the sheet pan, sprinkle the 1 tablespoon of capers, ⅓ cup olives halved and ⅓ cup chopped prunes around the chicken. Sprinkle the dish with brown sugar and salt.

4. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. If you would like the meat and veggies to have a bit of char, broil for 3 minutes or until desired caramelization is achieved.

5. Remove the chicken onto a serving dish along with the olives and prunes. Pour the warm pan drippings into a small saucepan, bring to a simmer and reduce by half. Whisk in cold butter until fully incorporated.

6. Serve chicken along with sauce. Enjoy!
