Expert Tips

Niçoise refers to dishes that are typical of the cuisine found in and around Nice, a city on the French Riviera. These foods often contain olives, garlic, onions and herbs.

You can substitute 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breast halves for the thighs. Use 1/4 cup of chopped pitted ripe olives instead of the Kalamata olives.
