  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a large cast-iron skillet, heat the olive oil and smashed garlic over medium-high heat. Add the chicken skin-side down and cook, turning once, for 10 minutes or until browned. Remove from pan and set aside. Discard the excess oil.
  • In the same skillet, add fresh olive oil and quartered garlic and sauté until translucent, about 2 minutes. Stir in the olives, capers, basil, and oregano and cook for 1 minute.
  • Stir in tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and chili flakes.
  • Return the chicken to the skillet, spooning the sauce over the pieces. Add the chicken stock, cover with an oven-safe lid or aluminum foil, and bake at 350° for 1 hour or until chicken is tender and cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle with additional fresh basil leaves. Serve hot.
