Pan Roasted Chicken with Lemon, Olives and Rosemar

Lynnda Cloutier


This deeply flavored chicken is loaded with character. The sauce seeps into the meat while simmering and creates an almost stew like dish. You can add even more olives if you like some in every bite. From Blanchard's Table. (A great cookbook!)
