“A simple one-pot oven dish. Very tasty and easy, the potatoes cooking in the stock which is enriched by the chicken, olives and lemon. I can't remember where I saw this first and can't find the recipe. So I've been experimenting and this is the closest I can get to the original. Please feel free to amend with your improvements!”
