It is time for a culinary flashback . Today i am cooking a dish that i last ate 10 years ago . A middle eastern shop in my mother’s town was selling couscous and Moroccan chicken for take away , she used to buy it for my sisters and i every week ends. The chef never gave his recipe away after many attempts . So today i tried to remember the flavors of the dish , and using ingredients and spices that i have in my kitchen , i cooked this chicken dish that was very good but was missing something . This recipe is a work in progress.
*4 chicken thighs
*3 tbsp of harissa
*3 garlic cloves
*70 grs of pitted green olives
*2 pickled lemons

3.Place the chicken and marinade in an oven dish and bake 30 minutes at 190 degrees Celsius.
