Pollo de Heather

Chicken with Castelvetrano Olives, Lemon, and Herbs, AKA “Pollo de Heather”

When I made this for a client a few months ago, Rick James sniffed around the kitchen, asking for his portion. I usually make extra food for us (so that I don't have to cook for clients and us!), but for whatever reason, I didn't think he'd be excited about this meal. I'm unsure why—it has all his favorite ingredients: Castelvetrano olives, lemon, garlic, and herbs. And it matches his food vibe: simple and homey.

That night, I made this for us, and have made it several times since. It's so simple to whip up and uses ingredients I always have in my kitchen. Rick James loved it so much that he coined it "Pollo de Heather”!
