A couple weekends ago, John and I headed off to Atascadero and Paso Robles for a relaxing, albeit chilly & rainy, weekend in Central California Wine Country. We visited the Adelaida, Tablas Creek, Eberle, Opolo, and Chumeia wineries and the Orchid Hill tasting room and brought back enough wine to last us through the next year! Olive groves are intermingled with vineyards in Paso Robles much like you would expect in Italy, France, and Spain. We also visited Pasolivo where we tasted everything and bought a bag full of gourmet cooking items. Among them were the Olive Jam and Lime Olive Oil that inspired this dish.
It has a wonderfully unique flavor. The chicken is very tender and the glaze is lightly sweet. The sweetness of the Olive Jam and Honey complement the tangyness of the lime with the slight pepper flavor of the chili sauce perfectly. The layers of flavor in each bite are intense and delicious.
1/2 teaspoon Chinese Chili sauce
Place chicken on dinner plates.
