    Chef floWer's Note:

    Moroccan Chicken with lemons and three types of olives. If you like sour/lemon flavours then this dish will be suitable for you. This dish is very easy and preparation time is only 10 mins and 30 mins to marinate. The recipe requires 1 chicken cut into serving pieces but I used 8 chicken pieces (thighs & drumsticks) with skin off. I don't normally have fresh coriander regularly available but I used 1 teaspoon of coriander powdered. It comes from a book called 'The Olive Oil Cookbook' by Marlena Spieler.

      My family really enjoyed this dish. The flavours where intense Will definately be making again. Just a couple of changes - I didn't have enough lemons, so I added sliced preserved lemons instead of lemon wedges. I had the fresh coriander so used that and I cooked it on the stove top in my new tangine. To balance out the sharp citrus taste and served this with steamed couscous studded with currants and pinenuts. I made this as part of Recipe Swap #35

      This is a very pretty dish - has a lot of good flavors - salt is a definte must in this recipe - just lacks a little in depth of flavors tried them again as leftovers the day after the day after and there was something there that wasn't there the day it was made so perhaps like good soups and stews this one taste's better with age!!! thank you
