This is a delicious healthy combination of a sharp lemon flavour and salty black olives, great with some saffron rice.

Ingredients: Serves two

  • ½ tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
  • ½ red onion, sliced
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 x 100g free-range boneless skinless chicken breasts.
  • 120ml vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander, about a small handful from the bunch
  • 75g medium black olives, pitted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon, grated


In a lightly oiled frying pan or wok sauté the onion until soft, add the garlic and cinnamon, sauté for a further 1 minute. Add the chicken breasts, cook until well browned on all sides. Add the stock and coriander, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Add lemon zest and the olives and simmer for a further 10 minutes.
Remove just the chicken to a serving plate keeping it warm in a low heat oven or with some kitchen foil, placed just over the top.

Bring the remaining sauce to a boil and simmer until the sauce has reduced and thickened, pour over the chicken and serve with lemon wedges and a variety of vegetables or mixed salad.
