  CORIANDER CHICKEN

INGREDIENTS: 

1 small chicken, cut into pieces or 4 - 6 boneless breasts and/or thighs  of chicken
5 tbsp. olive oil
4 large cloves of garlic, crushed
1 tsp. turmeric or saffron
salt and pepper to taste
sprig of fresh coriander leaves, or 2 tsp. ground coriander
1/4 lb. purple olives, pitted (Greek or Italian)
1 lemon, sliced

DIRECTIONS:

Brown the chicken in oil in a large, heavy skillet over moderate heat. Add the garlic cloves, spices, and coriander (chopped 
fine). Cook for about 10 minutes, turning the chicken pieces occasionally to distribute sauce evenly. Stir in enough water to cover, about 1 cup, and simmer over low heat, adding more water if necessary until the chicken is tender. Add olives and lemon and cook over somewhat lower heat for 8-10 more minutes, or until sauce is reduced. Serve over rice or couscous.
