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 and it reminded me of dining at a farmhouse in Fiesole in Tuscany.  Fiesole is perched on a hill with many olive groves 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 equal to only 1/2 cup liquids (it also makes liquid on its own)
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.)
