    In shallow glass or plastic dish or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix all ingredients except chicken and olives. Add chicken; turn to coat with marinade. Cover dish or seal bag; refrigerate 1 hour.
  • 2
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade. Place chicken, skin sides down, on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 15 minutes. Turn chicken; brush with marinade. Cover grill; cook 20 to 40 minutes longer, brushing occasionally with marinade, until juice of chicken is clear when thickest piece is cut to bone (170°F for breasts; 180°F for thighs and drumsticks). Discard any remaining marinade. Serve chicken with olives.

Expert Tips

  • Cook chicken pieces evenly by placing the meatier pieces in the center of the grill rack and smaller pieces around the edge. Turn frequently.
  • Kalamata olives, known as the Cadillac of olives, are imported from Greece. The plump, purplish to black olives have a moist texture and a robust, winelike flavor.
