Algerian Coriander Chicken

Coriander Chicken


Serves 2-4


1 small chicken, cut into pieces or 4-6 boneless breasts and/or thighs of chicken
1 tbsp butter
4 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 for Coriander Chicken

Brown the chicken in butter and 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 reduces. Server over rice or couscous.
