Prepare the French Chicken
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat; add oil. Add shallots, garlic, herbs, and spices; sauté for a few minutes, until fragrant. Add starch and chicken stock; cook to thicken a bit to form a sauce. Remove from pan; set aside.
To the same pan, add chicken; brown well on all sides.
Transfer chicken to a nine- x 13-inch pan; pour sauce around chicken. Arrange olives and tomatoes around chicken.
Bake uncovered for one hour 15 minutes.
You can skip the sautéing process, but it really does bring out lots of flavor.
