Preparation Time: 40 minutes


  • 2 bone or boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup La Panza Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
    Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
  • Fresh parsley for garnish
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • In a small bowl, mix La Panza Extra Virgin Olive Oil, minced garlic, chopped rosemary, salt, and pepper to create the marinade.
  • Place the chicken in a Ziploc bag and pour half of the marinade over them. Seal the bag and massage the marinade into the chicken, ensuring it's well coated. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes (or overnight for enhanced flavor).
  • Heat an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add a bit of La Panza Olive Oil to coat the pan.
  • Sear the chicken breasts for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  • Pour the remaining marinade over the chicken, add lemon slices, cherry tomatoes, and Kalamata olives to the skillet.
  • Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and roast for about 20-25 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  • Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.
  • Plate the chicken with the roasted veggies and olives. Drizzle any pan juices over the top.
Serve this romantic dish with a side of your choice and enjoy a delightful Valentine's Day dinner!
