Chicken with Rosemary, Lemon & Olives

This Chicken with Rosemary, Lemon & Olives recipe comes to us courtesy of Arshena AKA @week.end.cook. We love how the garlic, olives and herbs combine into captivating Mediterranean flavors. By pan frying the chicken, you can easily and quickly make enough for the whole family.

She created this delightful dish that brings out the best in our Nor Cal Honey. With its citrus pollen and rich, fruity flavor, it’s the perfect complement to the spices in Arshena’s recipe.
