A generous spoonful of this delicious relish is all you need to finish perking up spiced chicken thighs. Briny olives have the satisfying, full flavor that healthy fat provides—and one or two bites define the perfect appetizer or condiment.


  1. To make the relish, use either the fine side of a box grater or a citrus zester to remove the zest (the colored part of the skin only) from the lemon. Squeeze the juice; put zest and juice in small bowl. Stir in rest of relish ingredients. Set aside.
  2. Season chicken with the spices and salt. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, chicken for 15 to 18 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink in center. Cook to internal temp of 165°F. Remove from pan.
  3. Add relish mixture to skillet; cook over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until warm. Spoon over chicken.
