Lemon chicken with olives
This was my Dinner last Evening. It was great BUT next time I will add a teaspoon full of corn starch to the broth because I found the sauce very thin. It was really tasty though! I served it with Basmati rice.

prep time10 min, total time 55 min, serves 4


8 skin-on chicken drumsticks (about 2 lbs/1 kg)

tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper

1 Tbsp (15 mL) olive oil

lemon, thinly sliced crosswise, seeds removed

20 large pitted green olives

1 tomato, chopped

6 clove garlic, peeled and halved

cup (175 mL) sodium-reduced chicken broth

2 tsp (10 mL) fresh oregano, chopped


Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In large cast-iron skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken all over in two batches, about 5 minutes.

Arrange and nestle lemon slices, olives, tomato and garlic in and around chicken. Pour in broth; bring to boil. Transfer pan to preheated 375F (190C) oven and bake until cooked through, about 40 minutes.

Sprinkle with oregano. No fresh oregano? Replace with chopped with parsley or chives instead.

Thanks Jennifer.

I made that for my boys about a week ago and they really liked it. It will be in my regular rotation now.
