Garlic and Lime Chicken with Olives

My posts have been a bit hit and miss lately and I apologise for that! Things have been a bit crazy with work and trying to prepare for markets and just life in general! Everyone knows the feeling I think.

A while ago I posted a recipe for Spicy Rice. We had it for dinner last night with this chicken dish I found on Food Network - it goes so well together. I have made a couple of very minor changes to the recipe, so I'll put it below. For the original, just click on the link above.

4 chicken thighs, cut into bite-size chunks
1 onion, diced
1 capsicum, cut into bite-size pieces
6 mushrooms, sliced (I sometimes put them in if I have them)
1/2 cup kalamata olives, sliced

For the sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
2tbs lime juice
1tbs molasses (available in the health food section of Coles)
2tsp Worcestershire sauce (check this is gluten free - I use Spring Gully or Beerenberg)
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1tsp oregano

1. Prepare the 1st set of ingredients and place in a baking dish (I use a small lasagne dish).
2. Mix the sauce together in a bowl and stir until everything is well mixed. Pour over the chicken.
3. Place in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.

I make this for 2 and we always have leftovers - aren't leftovers great?!?


  1. Mmmm...This looks good. I need to head to the store and get some of these ingredients. =)
