Double-Duty Chicken with Olives & Artichokes

My grandmother came from the region around Seville, Spain, where olives are produced. They get a starring role in her scrumptious chicken. —Suzette Zara, Scottsdale, Arizona

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 bone-in chicken thighs (3 pounds), skin removed if desired
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 can (14 ounces) water-packed quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1/2 cup pimiento-stuffed olives
  • 1 bay leaf

  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • GREMOLATA:
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Directions

  • In a shallow bowl, mix flour, garlic salt and pepper. Dip chicken thighs in flour mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. In batches, brown chicken on both sides. Transfer to a 4-qt. slow cooker.
  • Sprinkle garlic, lemon zest, thyme and rosemary over chicken. Top with artichoke hearts, olives and bay leaf. In a bowl, mix orange juice, broth and honey; pour over top. Cook, covered, on low 4-5 hours or until chicken is tender. Remove bay leaf.
  • Reserve 4 chicken thighs for Double-Duty Chicken & Feta Spinach Salad; cover and refrigerate. To serve remaining chicken, mix gremolata ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle over chicken and artichoke mixture.
