Chicken Thighs with Lemon, Honey & Green Olives

Coating the chicken thighs with a mixture of butter and honey before they go into the water bath gives them a particularly juicy, succulent texture, while a quick sear just before serving provides a flavorful caramelized finish.

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tablespoon honey
Grated zest of 1 lemon
2 lb boneless, skin-on chicken thighs
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, smashed
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1⁄2 cup chopped green olives
Flaky sea salt, for finishing
Fennel fronds or fresh herbs of choice, for garnish

Prepare an immersion circulator for use according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Preheat the water to 150°F.

In a small bowl, combine the butter, honey, and lemon zest and mix well. Season the chicken thighs generously with kosher salt and pepper and rub all over with the butter mixture. Place the thighs and garlic in a vacuum bag, arranging the thighs in a single layer, and vacuum seal closed.

When the water reaches 150°F, lower the bags into the water bath and clip the top of the bags to the side of the water basin. Cook for 1–1 1⁄2 hours.

When the chicken is ready, remove the bags from the water bath, transfer the thighs to a large plate, and pat them dry.

In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Add the chicken, skin side down, and sear until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to individual plates and sprinkle with the olives. Finish with a sprinkle of sea salt and garnish with fennel fronds. Serve right away.
