Tagine of Chicken and Olives
 I think tomorrow's dinner is being planned right now...

I have become fortunate in that my husband is having some "at home" time. And as it turns out, he is a good cook! It is wonderful to come home and have dinner ready, the table set and a glass of wine waiting for me........

You know this girl would like to could get used to this, but I digress, let's get on to the recipe!

Tagine of Chicken and Olives
adapted from:  The Ultimate Pressure Cooker Cookbook

1/4 c olive oil
3 c chopped onions
6 medium carrots, peeled and finely chopped
6 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
2 T flour
4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves  OR 6 thighs, cut in half (we used thighs)
2 c chicken stock (bone broth)
1 bay leaf
1 1/2 t salt
1/4 t fresh ground pepper
1 10 oz jar of pitted Spanish Manzanilla olives drained well

3 c cooked rice
fresh minced parsley - if desired

Heat the olive oil in pressure cooker pan, saute the onions** 4-5 minutes until soft. Do Not Brown.  Add the carrots and garlic, saute 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, sprinkle with the flour and stir well to incorporate the flour into the vegetables.

Add chicken, bone broth and seasonings to the pressure cooker. Heat according to manufacturers' directions. When pressure is established, cook 12 minutes. Release pressure, add olives, lock lid and bring back up to pressure and cook on high 3 minutes. Remove from heat, and lower pressure using the cold water release method. For electric cookers, follow manufacturers' directions. Open the cooker, taste broth, correct seasoning if needed.
