  1. Start by seasoning all sides of the chicken generously with salt and coarsely freshly grated black pepper.
  2. Sear the chicken in olive oil in a casserole. Take your time to sear the chicken well – this gives it some color as well as render out some of the fat.
  3. Transfer the chicken into a bowl and pour out all the oil from the casserole. Return the chicken into the casserole, breast side up.
