Chicken with Lemon and Olives

Prep time 10 min
Cook time 25 min
4 servings

Carol added about an extra 1/3 of the following ingredients for extra flavor, but listed here are the original amounts:

1) Heat 2 tbsp oil in heaavy skillet over high heat.  Season chicken with salt and pepper, add chicken, brown on both sides, ~3 minutes per side.  Remove to platter.  (Note if you use thighs w/ bones as Carol did, it takes about 40 minutes to cook through.)

2) Heat remaining 2 tbsp oil in same skillet over med-high heat.  Saute onion and garlic 5 min.  Add turmeric and stir one minute.  Stir in broth and lemon juice.  Return chicken to skillet.  Add capers and olives.

3) Simmer until chicken is cooked through and flavors blend, turning chicken occasionally, about 15 min.  Season to taste w/ salt and pepper.

4) Transfer chicken to platter. Spoon sauce over.  Garnish with lemon wedges and serve.

Carol says this is better the second day.  Probably because you have more time for the flavors to penetrate the chicken.  merrrrr liked it a lot, but you kind of need to like olives
