Allergy Free Lemon Rosemary Chicken with Green Olives


Allergy Free Lemon Rosemary Chicken with Green Olives

Allergy-Friendly, Gluten-Free

Serves 4-6

I’ve been on a chicken kick, as you can probably tell from my last two recipe posts.  This one is easy as pie to throw together, and is a real summer crowd pleaser.  My boys love it with Jasmine rice.  If you don’t have green olives, Kalamata are equally yummy!


  • 2 lbs boneless chicken breast
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon finely minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 large lemon, cut into wedges
  • 15 green olives (Spanish olives are nice for this)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons dry white wine
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Drizzle bottom of large Dutch oven or heavy baking dish with 2 Tablespoons of the olive oil. Place chicken breasts in pan, being sure not to overcrowd.  Sprinkle tops of chicken with garlic and rosemary.  Turn them, so they are coated on all sides.
  3. Surround chicken with lemon wedges. Toss in olives.  Drizzle top with remaining 2 Tablespoons olive oil, white wine, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Place on center rack of oven, and bake 40-50 minutes, basting with pan juices once halfway through, until lightly golden on top, and cooked through (cooking duration depends on thickness of the chicken breasts). If you wish to brown up the chicken a bit more, baste again with pan juices, and run it under the broiler on high for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Serve warm with rice, or potatoes, and a nice green salad.  This is also great at room temperature, for lunch day two!

    Very pleased to hear it passed the picky eater test. My picky kid likes it too, which I found amazing given the rosemary and olives. Go figure!

    It was our 14th wedding anniversary. The cool thing was that I cooked it the day before so for our anniversary all I had to do was heat it up — still was quite moist and very tasty. And, I’m not a cook — and my husband had seconds — so in all in all, this was a winner in my book. Thanks again!

    When searching for a real Moncler winter weather jacket you’ll not find one now, not really right up until April. Moncler’s generation is rather constrained. Just about any that you come across today are probably imitations, in addition to almost every retailer you’ll find by using a search engine
