This was a hit! We expected a sour dish (with the lemon and green olives), but were pleasantly surprised by the flavor. It's a multi-step recipe, but worth every minute. Delicious and impressive.

This is one of our favorite chicken entrees and we love the lemon and citrus flavors mixed with olives and spices.

I've made this recipe a number of times. It is great in the winter. I use boneless, skinless chicken thighs - tough more fat,absorb flavor better. Breasts just don't do the job for this recipe. Also can do this in crockpot and it works! Great for weekdays.

Yum. Made it just like it says, except we used minced garlic from a jar. Don't fear the cilantro -- it doesn't take over the taste like in some recipes, but it clearly adds to it.

I have made this many a time & my husband and I love it. The flavors all go together great. Though you don't need a tagine dish for this version, to us it takes just like the tagine dishes we've had in moroccan restaurants. A very tasty dish!

We didn't marinate for an hour, just 5 min and glad. Think an hour would make the lemon too over powering. LOVE this recipe. Chicken is so juicy. Fav. chicken recipe so far.
