Grilled Chicken with Lemongrass & Cilantro 1

Olive, Garlic, and Lemon Chicken

Yield 4 servings



  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  2. Melt the cooking fat in a large and hot pan and brown the chicken pieces on all sides, about 6 minutes. Set the chicken aside.
  3. Cook the onions until soft, about 5 minutes, and make sure to scrape all the delicious chicken bits off the pan while doing so.
  4. Add the garlic and cook for about a minute, until fragrant. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Add the chicken stock, thyme and lemon juice and return the chicken thighs to the pan, skin side up.
  6. Bring to a simmer and place the pan, covered, in the hot oven for about 20 minutes.
  7. Remove the lid, add the halved olives as well as the lemon slices and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes uncovered.
  8. Serve the chicken with the olive, garlic and lemon sauce as well as with some of the lemon slices.
