  • 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 small bunch fresh basil, chopped

Directions

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.

Carefully open chicken packets and transfer mixture to 2 serving plates; serve beans alongside chicken.
