Ingredients

    1 tablespoon olive oil
    2 cups chopped onion (about 1 large)
    2 tablespoons dried thyme
    1 to 2 teaspoons black pepper
    10 garlic cloves, minced
    6 cups (1/2-inch) cubed red potato (about 2 pounds)

    1/4 cup water
    2 tablespoons anchovy paste or finely chopped olives

    8 skinned, boned chicken thighs (about 1 pound)
    1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°.

Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the thyme, pepper, and garlic; sauté 1 minute. Increase heat to medium-high. Add potato; sauté 8 minutes or until potato begins to brown. Stir in green beans, water, anchovy paste, and tomatoes. Remove mixture from heat. Nestle chicken thighs into potato mixture. Top with feta cheese. Cover and bake at 375° for 45 minutes.

    This sounds great, but I will definitely halve the portion size to keep the calories and fat down. (I only get 1200 calories a day, so I can't afford to eat half my calories in one meal.) - 9/2/09

  • I am definitely going to try this one. I agree - half of a serving is more like one serving for those of us aiming to balance calories over time. - 8/20/14

  • Almost 1900 grams of sodium in one serving? If anyone has any ideas on how to reduce the sodium content please share, otherwise I'm going to have to pass this one up. :( I imagine it's the anchovie paste but I'm not sure? - 10/4/13

  • I didn't have regular diced tomatoes, so used 2 cans Rot-el instead, plus a bit of tomato sauce, and I only used 4 chicken thighs. Used real goat cheese feta too. Yummy! and definitely easy to make. This one is a keeper! - 7/8/12
