Moroccan Lemon Chicken with Olives
Preparation time: 20 minutes. Cooking time: 1 hour.

Ingredients
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (approximately 4 ounces per breast)
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 sticks whole cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 lemons
2 small plum tomatoes, chopped
1 cup water
18 large green olives

Directions
Heat olive oil in a large pan. Place chicken breasts in hot oil and cook on all sides until slightly browned on surface. Remove from pan and set aside. To pan add onion, garlic, cinnamon sticks, cumin, turmeric, and black pepper. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring, until onion is cooked. Return chicken to pan and cover. Squeeze the juice of two lemons, reserving lemon peels. Add lemon juice to pan. Slice lemon peels into strips and add to pan with chopped tomatoes, water, and olives. Cover the pan and bring contents to a boil, then reduce heat to low and allow the mixture to simmer for about 45 minutes, until chicken is tender, occasionally lifting the lid to stir mixture and check that liquid available in pot is adequate to avoid burning.
