In the baking dish, next to the chicken, arrange the prepared vegetables and olives. Generously drizzle the vegetables with olive oil and lightly sprinkle the chicken with oil as well. Add the remaining sprigs of rosemary, sprinkle the chicken and vegetables with coarse sea salt and pepper. Carefully mix the vegetables with two spoons to evenly coat them with oil. Place the chicken in the oven for one and a half hours. By this time, the chicken should be fully cooked. If you pierce the chicken thigh with the tip of a sharp knife, clear juice should flow out. The vegetables should also become soft and golden brown.
