Pete's Blood Orange & Fig chicken w/ Caramelized Onions & Olives

Pete's Blood Orange & Fig chicken w/ Caramelized Onions & Olives

A super tasty, easy chicken recipe made with our Blood Orange Fused Olive Oil and Black Mission Fig Balsamic. The caramelized onions and Castelvetrano olives are a match made in heaven!

Click image below for the how-to video!


3-4 chicken breasts

1 medium onion, sliced thin

2 tbsp NOOC Blood Orange Olive Oil

2 tbsp NOOC Black Mission Fig Balsamic

1 tsp dried rosemary (or 1 tbsp fresh, chopped)

1 tsp dried thyme (or 1 tbsp fresh, chopped)

1 tsp ground coriander

1/2 c castelvetrano green olives

Sea salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste

2 tbsp water



PREHEAT oven to 325F

CARAMELIZE onions in 1 tbsp of the Blood Orange Olive Oil & a few shakes of salt over med heat in a large frying pan until nicely browned and soft - don't rush this step, it should take 25-30 mins, turn heat down a bit if they are browning too fast.

SEASON Chicken with herbs, salt & pepper. Move onions to the sides of the pan, add another tbsp of blood orange olive oil and increase heat to med/ high.

ADD chicken to pan and sear both sides until slightly browned (not cooked through, about 30 secs per side) and remove from pan

ADD the Fig Balsamic to the pan, reduce to medium heat and toss with the onions for about 1 minute.

PLACE chicken back in pan and turn a few times to evenly coat in onion/balsamic mixture. ADD olives and water to pan, COVER and bake for 15-20 mins (depending on thickness), until chicken is cooked through (180F). Remove from oven and let stand, covered for 5 mins. Top with the juices and bits from the pan and serve with rice and salad!

"Great experience. Thought I was just getting olive oil. We tried so many pairings, we had to stop to be able to decide on what we wanted. All combinations were good. The advice was good as well. We were told to think about how and what we cooked before deciding on what we wanted. This helped us to choose what we would cook with, instead of buying based on the taste. They all tased good!"
"Wandered in here on a whim and was blown away! I absolutely love olive oil and have visited some great places in growing regions in Argentina/Spain etc., but this is by far some of the best tasting flavour combinations I've ever had - not what I was expecting to find on a visit to Canada.
Highly recommend :)
I love shopping at the Nelson Olive Oil Co. Michelle and her team are there to help you find the right oil or vinegar to suit your needs. Always excellent friendly service, very fast and efficient. I refer friends and family at every opportunity. I highly recommend checking them out if you haven’t already.
