Chicken with olives and candied lemons
Chicken with olives and candied lemons is a condensed Mediterranean flavor. The marriage of olives and candied lemon is a real wonder.

- Add the poultry broth so as to completely cover the thighs
- Add the fresh olives
- Finally, add the candied lemons cut into quarters or slices
Cooking chicken with olives and candied lemon:
The minimum cooking time is about 30 minutes on low and covered, but you can cook a little longer if you feel that the chicken is not yet tender enough.
When finished cooking, lift the lid and let stand until dinner to let everything candy.
- Cooking time ranges from 30 to 45 minutes
- Cooking is done over low heat and covered
- To reheat it the next day, take the same precaution (about 10 minutes)
As an accompaniment, we recommend that you semolina or rice, served in a rather deep dish if you like it bathed in its sauce.
Enjoy your meal !
