How to Make It

Step 1

Place juice in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat; cook until reduced to 1/4 cup (about 3 minutes). Place juice, olives, and next 4 ingredients (through anchovies) in a food processor. Add 1 tablespoon oil; process until well blended.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 3

Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and pepper. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 3 breast halves to pan, meat sides down; cook 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Place chicken on a jelly-roll pan. Repeat procedure with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and remaining 3 breast halves. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until chicken is done. Serve with tapenade. Garnish with orange wedges and parsley, if desired.

Step 4

Wine note: If you haven't tried the white grape varietal viognier, now is the time. The bright, exotic orange flavor in this dish is enhanced by a viognier's citrusy floral and exotic qualities. A terrific, lively one is Yalumba's Viognier 2007 from Eden Valley, Australia ($12). —Karen MacNeil
