  • Servings: 4
Pan-Roasted Chicken

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, October Fall 2008


  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 16 large black olives, such as Kalamata, pitted and halved
  • 3 tablespoons capers (nonpareil), drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 skin-on boneless chicken breast halves (about 6 ounces each), rinsed and patted dry
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Prepare sauce: Heat oven to 475 degrees. Toss tomatoes, olives, capers, and 2 tablespoons oil together in a bowl.

  2. Sear chicken: Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over high heat until shimmering, about 1 minute. Add remaining tablespoon oil and heat until hot but not smoking. Place chicken in skillet, skin side down, and cook until deep golden brown, about 4 minutes. Use tongs to flip chicken, then add tomato mixture to skillet.

  3. Roast: Transfer skillet to oven and roast chicken until cooked through and tomatoes have softened, 15 to 18 minutes.

  4. Serve: Transfer everything to a platter, or divide chicken among plates and spoon some tomato mixture over the top.

    I like the photos and I dont mind using a little extra ink. It helps when I'm looking through my recipes. Thanks Martha for all of your wonderful ideas that make life a bit easier for people like me who have trouble at times trying coming up with new ideas for meals when I'm having friends over.

    Absolutely delicious! The only thing I did different was use boneless, skinless chicken breast. I loved the flavor combination.

    sorry but think when you want to print out a recipe from your site, you should just have that on it so you don't have to waste ink on your picture

    This dish was easy, good and very tasty but I didn't have as much sauce as Martha had on television. Any suggestions?
