CHICKEN WITH LEMON AND OLIVES
I've made this dish and it is really good. I'll make it again and again.
The combination of spices is magic.
7 chicken whole-legs, skinned and cut ( makes it 14 pieces)5 cloves garlic, minced
about 1 -2 cups of low sodium chicken broth
3 inches stick of cinnamon
3/4 cup flat parsley, minced
2 tablespoons cumin, ground
1 large onion, minced
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger (I used more), or powder. I used fresh ginger.
1/2 teaspoon turmeric or saffron (I used saffron)
10-12 Greek kalamata olives (I used more olives)
3/4 cup lemon juice (I used less)
Saute chicken parts with a little olive oil on both sides, until golden (in one layer)
Add the chicken broth,garlic, cinnamon, parsley, cumin, onion,black peppercorns,ginger, salt and turmeric (or saffron, and olives,
Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer until cooked (about 1 hour)
