This honey glazed chicken with lemons and olives is a simple and tasty way to serve chicken.



2 T olive oil
1 large onion, cut and peeled in rings
1 4.5 lb chicken, cut into 10 pieces
Salt, pepper, paprika
1/2 c of honey
2 c white wine
1 jar of preserved lemons from Trader Joe’s or just use 2 whole lemons, sliced
1/2 c of black pitted Nicoise olives
1 handful of chopped cilantro or parsley


Preheat oven to 375. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium high heat and fry the onions until golden. Cover these and  steam and cook faster but turn down to medium.  Remove from Dutch oven and set aside.

Season the chicken with salt, pepper and paprika. Brown in the Dutch oven. Set aside.

Place onions back in a 13 x 9 roasting pan and place chicken, skin side up, on top of onions. Now smear some honey on top of each piece of chicken. Pour the wine and remaining honey into the Dutch oven and bring to a boil. Reduce by half. Scatter the lemon slices and olives around the chicken.

Bake uncovered about 40 minutes, or until the chicken pieces are cooked through. Sprinkle with cilantro or parsley before serving. I also garnished this with some fresh lemon slices!
