Rustic Italian Sheet Pan Chicken

Doesn't this remind you of a rustic meal you'd experience in the Tuscany region of Italy?
Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman) cooked up this dish on the Food Network recently and it immediately reminded me of dining at a farmhouse in perhaps in Fiesole--home to many olive farms.  Fiesole is perched on a hill just 10 minutes outside the beautiful city of Florence... 

This is super savory and a healthy one dish meal.  
Here’s Ree Drummond's basic recipe for Italian Sheet Pan Chicken, I think you'll love.

NOTE:  I made these changes to the recipe:
I used olive oil infused with basil;
I substituted lemon balsamic (see below) for the plain balsamic;
I added green olives;
I used whole wheat bread for the croutons.

I marinate mine over night.  Here it is ready to go into the oven.

Allora!  These were extra large chicken thighs, my goodness!
Serve with a nice Chardonnay!

I used the best lemon balsamic purchased at the Olive House (Solvang, CA.)
