2 bone-in chicken thighs without skin
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
8 pitted kalamata olives, halved
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar
1 small bunch fresh basil, chopped

Herbed White Beans
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can (15 or 16 oz) white beans, rinsed and drained
1 tomato, chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh mixed herbs
1 tsp red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper (optional)


To make the chicken, heat oven to 375degF. Place each chicken thigh on a large square of aluminum foil. Combine remaining chicken ingredients; spoon over chicken. Fold foil up and over chicken, sealing edges and forming a packet. Bake 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Meanwhile, to prepare the beans, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook 2 minutes. Add remaining bean ingredients; cook 5 minutes, or until heated through. Carefully open chicken packets and transfer mixture to 2 serving plates; serve beans alongside chicken.
