Preserved Lemon and Olive Chicken

If you ran out to grab lemons and salt after reading Chew Town’s preserved lemon recipe two weeks ago, you probably have a jar of them sitting in a dark place anxiously counting the days and awaiting the moment it can be opened. Well, in anticipation of the two weeks left till you can start using them, I am making good on my promise to bring you my recipe for my Preserved Lemon and Olive Chicken.

Preserved lemon and chicken are a match made in heaven. Add olives to the pairing and its an even better match. With an abundance of tagine inspired preserved lemon recipes, I was determined to introduce the glassy lemons into a dish featuring Italian flavours. Preserved lemon is not traditionally used in Italian recipes which truly surprises me as they complement the flavours so beautifully.

The recipe to follow uses chicken legs but would work just as well with wings or chicken thighs.

    Oh Amanda this looks so delicious. I love how you have used the more budget cut of chicken, the leg. Plus being on the bone it is more flavoursome.

    This is a budget meal, with the addition of a lux home made product. Just proves by doing a little bit of home preserving, you can make something spectacular from other simple products.
