These dutch oven mediterranean chicken thighs are perfect for a chilly fall or winter evening when you want something warming and flavorful to lift your spirits.
Simplicity is Bliss
This dish calls for simple, unprocessed and nutritious ingredients, all essentials of the Mediterranean Diet. I love this Mediterranean chicken thigh recipe because it’s healthy but also filling since it’s high in healthy fats from the extra virgin olive oil, olives and chicken thighs. It’s a great recipe if you’re busy in the evenings because once you get all the ingredients cooking in the dutch oven, you can just let it cook and allow the delicious flavors to come together.
Out of all kitchen tools and cookware, one of my favorite things to cook with is my dutch oven. Not all dutch ovens cost hundreds of dollars like the Le Creuset variety and you can easily purchase an amazing one for under $100. I actually got my Le Creuset from a tag sale for only $5!
Trust me when I say, you can use a dutch oven for everything. Dutch ovens can be used to make soups, pasta dishes, casseroles and even bread.
After you’ve cooked these Mediterranean chicken thighs in the dutch oven, serve hot and top with some sprigs of fresh rosemary. I like to also use my dutch oven as a serving dish so it really comes in handy for minimizing clean up and looks amazing on the table.

We hope you enjoy!
