I love, love, love olives! If you agree, jump on board because this chicken recipe featuring kalamata olives—a dark purple Greek olive—will be one of your new favorite dishes. By the way, I wouldn’t use this for the Seder because browning might give the impression of roasted meat. But it’s a great dish for other yom tov and Shabbos meals. Did I mention that I love olives?
