Ingredients

¼ cup olive oil

4 chicken marylands

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

6 cloves garlic, lightly crushed

small handful sage leaves

1 cup white wine

1 cup green Sicilian olives, drained and rinsed

Method

Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Heat the olive oil in a large wide saucepan or casserole dish suitable for oven use, over a medium heat. Season chicken pieces well and sear until browned on all sides.

Add the garlic cloves and sage leaves and cook for a couple more minutes until fragrant. Pour in the wine, add the olives and transfer the dish to the hot oven. Cook for 30-40 minutes.

Remove the chicken and place the casserole dish onto the stove top over a medium heat. Add 3 tbsp of water and scrape down the sides with a wooden spoon to incorporate caramelised bits back into liquid.

Bring to boil and simmer for a few minutes to thicken slightly. Season to taste.

Serve the chicken pieces with olive and sage braising liquid.

HOT TIPS

• Serve the chicken with steamed green beans and soft polenta or mashed potato. A perfect one-bowl meal.

• The olive and sage flavours are sublime with fresh fish fillets. Make the sauce ahead of time and simply pour over pan-fried fish.

•  Great served with cavolo nero and silverbeet.

    I made this dish last night and while the flavours were amazing I found marylands diffucult to work with because they were so big. Took a long time to brown and a lot longer to cook than the suggested time. Will make it again because of the fantastic taste but would probably use chicken chops.

    Made this the other night. So easy and yet so delectable. I will definitely make this again. A lovely recipe for a special dinner or for a weeknight.

    Such a simple recipe - minimal preparation, was on the stove within 10 minutes. The flavour from such few ingredients was phenomenal. Chicken was juicy and just cooked after 40 minutes. Used a good chardonnay, served with a polenta with gruyere mash and steamed greened beans. Amazing.
