  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil 
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 1 lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup green olives, pitted
  • salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  • Drizzle a little olive oil into a large cast iron skillet on medium heat. Wait for the oil to heat up.
  • Sear the chicken thighs on two sides for 5 minutes each. Remove to a plate.
  • Add the rest of the olive oil, the minced garlic, and the mustard greens to the pan. Saute for two minutes just to wilt the greens slightly.
  • Place the chicken thighs on top of the greens. Add the olives, cherry tomatoes, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
  • Bake in the oven uncovered for 30 minutes. Halfway through, spoon some of the liquid over the greens to prevent any crisping.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy!
