Kalamata-Lemon Chicken

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Annacia

This is a very good Mediterranean style chicken dish that I love (lemon lover here). You just brown the chicken for a few mins and add the rest of the ingredients and place it in the oven while you go about making a salad (or whatever).

This was very good, and I am sure I will make it again. I used bone in thighs and I think that was a good choice, they were falling off the bone tender. I loved the tangy flavor that the olives and lemons provided, but next time, I will include even more. The lemon wedges were a little bitter, so next time I will remove them before serving, but I would like even more lemon flavor. Maybe adding more lemon juice would do it. Thanks for posting!
