- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup pitted ripe olives

Preheat oven to 350°.
In a nonreactive bowl, marinate the chicken thighs in the lemon juice, salt, pepper and paprika for at least 30 minutes and up to two hours.
Heat olive oil in a skillet, and then remove the chicken from the marinade and brown on all sides. Place the browned chicken in a baking dish. Add the olives, onion, tomatoes, and orange juice.
Cover dish with foil and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and, when pierced, juices run clear.
