Chicken with olives and lemon recipe needed

A while back I remember someone mentioning a recipe they perfected for chicken w/olives and lemon. I've tried searching for the post but I can't find it. I have a hankering for a stewish dish with chicken and lemon. If anyone has a terrific recipe can you please share? Thanks!!!
I used to use the recipe in Paula Wolfert's excellent "Good Food from Morocco" exactly as written. Then I watched my Moroccan former M.I.L. make this dish. She always roasted the chickens separately.
Now I make the sauce from Wolfert's recipe, get it nice and thickened (with the olives and preserved lemons), and cut up a store-bought roasted chicken to add to the tagine pan. Heat through and serve. Faster, easier, and you can make the sauce ahead.
Here's a link (I hope - I'm so pathetic at this link stuff) to a couple of Moroccan recipes I posted back in September. The chicken tagine uses preserved lemons and olives. It is simply the best chicken tagine I have ever tried anywhere - including Morocco.
