Preheat the oven

Preheat the oven to 80°C.

Mediterranean chicken

Heat the oil in a frying pan. Season the chicken breast, brown for approx. 4 mins. on each side, remove from the pan, transfer to the preserving jars. Add the olives, orange peel, thyme and garlic. Place the jars on a baking tray. Pour in the oil until the meat is just covered.

To braise in the oven

Approx. 3 hrs. in the lower half of the preheated oven. Remove the jars, remove the meat from the oil, serve with the olives and garlic.

Good to know
Tip: Pour the cooled oil through a fine sieve, cover and leave to stand for approx. 1 day until the meat juice is set. Carefully strain the oil once more so that the meat juice remains in the jar. Store the oil in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for max. 1 month. The oil can be used for frying and steaming meat, fish and vegetables.
Serve with: Risotto
