VINEGAR CHICKEN WITH CRUSHED OLIVE DRESSING

This is one of the most popular NY Times recipes and for good reason! It is easy to make and beyond scrumptious. The ingredients work magically! This one is a keeper!! 

ingredients23romanrex-articleLarge

3 ½ pounds bone-in, skin-on chicken parts

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

6 tablespoons olive oil

Kosher salt and black pepper

½ cup white wine vinegar

1 ½ cups green Castelvetrano olives, crushed and pitted

2 garlic cloves, finely grated

1 cup parsley, tender leaves and stems, chopped

directions

Heat oven to 4500 F. Place chicken on a rimmed baking sheet and toss with turmeric and 2 tablespoons olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Make sure chicken is skin-side up, then pour vinegar over and around chicken and place in the oven.

Bake chicken, without flipping, until cooked through and deeply browned all over, 25 to 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine olives, garlic, parsley, the remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper.

Once chicken is cooked, remove baking sheet from the oven and transfer chicken to a large serving platter, leaving behind any of the juices and bits stuck to the pan.

Make sure the baking sheet is on a sturdy surface (the stovetop, a counter), then pour the olive mixture onto the sheet. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, gently scrape up all the bits the chicken left behind, letting the olive mixture mingle with the rendered fat and get increasingly saucy. Pour olive mixture over the chicken, then serve.
