  • 1 Pound Green Olives -- pitted Drained
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 8 Cloves Garlic -- finely chopped
  • 2 Medium Tomatoes -- finely chopped
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Turmeric
  • 2 Teaspoons Harissa (Tunisia)
  • 1 Lemon Lemon Juice
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 3 Pounds Chicken -- in large pieces
  • 6 Sprigs Parsley -- finely chopped

Cover and cook for 20 minutes. Add parsley and serve with rice or couscous.
