Of course you may, but it will change the mix of spices.
How about trying few olives and throw them away when you finish cooking. You may not taste the olives at all, but it may add to the great taste of this dish.

Do allways what works for you. If you really don't like olives, don't use them.

Beets are the same with me. I couldn't even think of adding them to any recipe, but lately I'm trying, taking "risks", and more nad more I'll use them because they are so healthy.
I used to hate also spinach, kale, collards and other vegetables, and now I eat them.
I took me a long time to get to like vegetables.

Now, exercise is a diferent story.... I'm still learning to like it. I allways like it at the end.

Thank you. I've made the corrections.
The olives are added with all the ingredients.
Salt can be added with the ingredients, but take into consideration that the olives are salty.
At the end of cooking, adjust the salt to your own taste.

Enjoy

A couple of questions. How much salt and when do you add the olives to the pot? Along with all the other ingredients?

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)

DIRECTIONS

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,
