This is a good recipe, not great, but good. If you cook this in a cast iron pan, it turns a deep dark purple.

  • 2 lbs chicken pieces, thighs bone-in would be best
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium white onion
  • 2 -3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 large lemon, juice of


  1. In a pan, brown the chicken pieces in oil and set aside.
