Ingredients

  • 4 chicken legs, split at the thigh and skinned
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 onions, grated or sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Rinds of 2 confit lemons, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 pinches saffron
  • 1 pinch ground turmeric
  • 1 cup/165 g green olives with pits
  • Generous handful or two of fresh coriander leaves, roughly chopped

Directions

Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Put the chicken in a pot along with the onions, garlic, lemon rinds, olive oil, cumin, coriander, ginger, saffron and turmeric. Add a couple glasses of water and cook, covered, until the chicken is done, 40 minutes to 1 hour, removing the lid if there is too much liquid so that some can evaporate. (The dish should be quite liquid, but it's not a stew.) At the end of cooking, add the olives. Serve sprinkled with fresh coriander.
