Moroccan Chicken with Olives

Moroccan Chicken with Olives

"This fragrant chicken will make its presence known long before it comes from the oven. Its spicy aroma will get everyone in the mood to enjoy a Middle Eastern feast! Serve with hot cooked rice or couscous, if desired. Kalamata olives garnish this Moroccan dish to add a slightly salty flavor. Greek or even ripe olives can be used if you can't get Kalamata olives."

superb blending of seasonings / flavors a true pleasure to all the senses

Very tasty recipe, but a little more liquid added to the dish would have been helpful as there was very little gravy to serve with it. This dish is good with basmati rice.
