Ingredients

1/2
cup
lemon juice
1/2
cup
low-sodium chicken broth
1/4
cup
honey
2
3 1/2- to 4-pound chickens, cut into pieces
2
tablespoons
olive oil
2
teaspoons
kosher salt
10
sprigs fresh thyme
2
cups
mixed large green and black olives

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 450º F. In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, broth, and honey. Rub the chicken pieces on all sides with the oil and salt.
  2. Place the chicken, skin-side down, in a roasting pan just large enough to make a single, snug layer. Pour the seasoned broth over the chicken and tuck the thyme among the pieces. Roast for 20 minutes.
  3. Turn the chicken skin-side up, add the olives, and cook for 20 minutes longer.
