Toast pine nuts in a heavy-bottomed 5- to 6-quart pan over medium heat until golden (about 7 minutes), shaking pan frequently.
Pour out of pan.
Increase heat to medium-high; add oil and butter to pan.
When butter is melted, add half the chicken pieces; cook, turning as needed, until browned on all sides (about 12 minutes).

Return all chicken (and any juices) and pine nuts to pan; add olives, the 6 sage leaves (or all the dry sage), and water.
Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until meat near bone is no longer pink; cut to test (about 25 minutes).
If desired, garnish with additional sage leaves.
