About Stovetop Moroccan Chicken With Preserved Lemon And Olives Recipe:

Chicken with preserved lemons and olives is a classic moroccan dish. Salty, lemony, and zesty, its a favorite of many moroccans Saffron is an optional but delicious, fragrant addition. This recipe is for conventional stovetop preparation in a dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot. The trick to this method is two-fold: this dish can also be made by cooking in a traditional tagine or slow-roasting in the oven. The last method is useful when serving a large group of people. Do not substitute fresh lemons for the preserved lemons.
