We’re giving our chicken a bright lift by finishing it with spoonfuls of a salty-sweet sauce of castelvetrano olives, dates, and date syrup. For a simple, hearty accompaniment, we’re serving herby roasted potatoes and sautéed kale tossed with tangy marinated onions.

Place in a large bowl. Pick the rosemary leaves off the stems; roughly chop. Add the chopped rosemary and cheese to the bowl of sliced potatoes. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Transfer to the sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Roast 24 to 26 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.
