Serves: 4

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat an oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Melt the butter in an oven-proof pan over medium heat. Stir the garlic, lemon juic, and tarragon into the butter. Cook the chicken breasts in the butter mixture until evenly browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Add the olives to the pan.
  3. Transfer the pan to the preheated oven and bake until the chicken is no longer pink in the centre and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read at least 74 degrees C.
