Classic dinner in my household, often made on days when any such meal decision presents itself as far too ominous at the end of the day.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, sauté the garlic in oil over medium heat until golden, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes more, until softened. Add the chicken, turmeric and pepper and cook over low heat, uncovered, for 15 minutes, turning occasionally.
  2. Add enough water to almost cover the chicken (about 1 cup), and then add the olives. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes more, or until the chicken is almost tender. Add the lemon juice and cilantro and cook, uncovered for 15 minutes more. Serve hot.
