PREPARATION
PREPARING THE CHICKEN
1.
Generously salt and pepper the chicken on both sides.
2.
In a large enameled cast-iron pot, add olive oil over high heat.
3.
Add the chicken and cook until deeply browned on each side, ~4-5 minutes for each side.
4.
Remove the chicken and set aside.
PREPARING THE MAIN DISH
5.
Turn the heat to medium and add the shallots to the pot. Cook, stirring often, until they begin to soften, about 3-4 minutes.
6.
Add a splash of the chicken stock and use a wooden spoon to loosen any bits of shallot or chicken that might be caught at the bottom.
7.
Add the remaining chicken stock and add the chicken back to the pot.
8.
Scatter the garlic cloves, olives and thyme sprig over the chicken.
9.
Evenly pour the lemon juice all over. Bring the mixture to a boil and then turn the heat as low as possible.
10.
Cover the pot and cook for 1 hour, or until the chicken is very tender.
11.
Uncover the pot and raise the heat.
12.
Let the pot boil to reduce and thicken the sauce until it's the texture of a gravy. Not too thin but not too thick. This will take 5-6 minutes.
13.
Serve immediately.
