The preparation
  1. Rinse and pat dry chicken and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Set aside while you prepare your vegetables.
  2. Thinly slice the onions, dice the tomatoes, and slice in half the kalamata olives and gather your spices.
The Process
  1. Heat large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add olive oil to the skillet.
  3. Once oil is sizzling, carefully add chicken thighs to skillet skin side down. Cover the pan to prevent splatter and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until chicken is evenly browned. Turn chicken and brown other side. Once the chicken is browned, remove it from the pan and set aside while you are making the sauce.
  4. Add the thinly slice onions to the pan and cook over medium heat until the onions are slightly browned and fragrant. About 4 minutes.
  5. Add the minced garlic and stir for one minute.
  6. Add plum tomatoes, saved juice, chicken broth and seasonings. Turn up heat until mixture is simmering.
  7. Add chicken to sauce, spooning sauce over the top and cover. Simmer chicken for 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and tender.
  8. Remove chicken from heat and stir in olives and arugula.
  9. Add salt and pepper to taste, if desired. Serve chicken hot with sauce spooned over it.
Recipe Notes

If you like a thicker sauce, you can remove the chicken after it is cooked and add 1/4 tsp of xanthum gum to the sauce to thicken. Then stir in kalamata olives and arugula. Serve chicken with sauce spooned over it.
