This rich and tangy chicken dish gets its zip from a bracing amount of red wine vinegar. We paired our chicken with juicy green olives, which add a burst of briny rich flavor to round out the tart chicken. Be sure to sear the chicken until well browned in Step 1. This first sear helps to develop deep complex flavors in the finished sauce.
