Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
3 pounds chicken thighs, boneless, skinless
skinned, rinsed
*
1 large onions
chopped
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon ginger
ground
*
½ teaspoon turmeric
ground
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ cup kalamata olives
*
10 moroccan lemon quarters
*
¼ cup cilantro
finely chopped, optional

Directions

Pour oil into a 10 to 12 inch frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and turn pieces often to brown on all sides, about 15 minutes. Lift out chicken; set aside.

Remove all but 1 tablespoon oil from pan. Add onion; stir often over medium-high heat until tinged with brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in paprika, ginger, turmeric, and pepper.

Add 1 cup water, chicken, olives, 6 preserved lemon quarters, and 1 tablespoon preserved lemon liquid. Cover pan and simmer, turning once, until meat is no longer pink at bone (cut to test) 20 to 25 minutes.

Skim and discard fat; transfer chicken and sauce to a wide bowl. Garnish chicken with remaining lemon wedges and cilantro.

NOTE:

For less sodium, use ripe olives instead of calamatas.
