From the Test Kitchen

WHY WE LOVE THIS DISH
We’re calling on the bold, zesty flavors of Louisiana’s Cajun cuisine by searing chicken in a blend of traditional spices, then topping it with a creamy take on the briny olive salad found on the region’s beloved Muffuletta sandwich.

TECHNIQUE TO HIGHLIGHT
To remove the pits from olives, start by placing them on a sturdy work surface. Working one at a time, use the wide, flat side of your chef’s knife (and a careful push of your hand) to gently press down and release the pit.
