  Broiler fryer chicken 2 , cut up
  Butter/Margarine 4 Tablespoon
  Onions 4 Medium, chopped
  Salt 3 Teaspoon
  Ground ginger 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Paprika 1 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Stuffed green olives 1 Bottle (1 l), drained and sliced (1 Jar)
  Flour 2 Tablespoon
  Bulgur 2 Tablespoon
  Chopped parsley 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

Directions

1. Wash the chicken pieces; pat dry. Brown, a few pieces at a time, in butter or margarine in a heavy kettle or Dutch oven; remove all from kettle.
2. Stir onions into drippings in kettle; saute until soft. Stir in salt, ginger, paprika, pepper and 1 cup water. Return chicken; cover.
3. Simmer, basting several times with liquid in kettle, 45 minutes, or until chicken is tender.
4. While chicken simmers, combine sliced olives with water to cover in a small saucepan; heat to boiling; drain. Keep hot for Step 7.
5. Remove chicken from the kettle; keep hot. Pour liquid into a 2-cup measure; let stand about 1 minute, or until fat rises to top, then skim off. Add water to liquid, if needed, to make 1 1/2 cups; return to kettle; heat to boiling.
6. Blend flour and 1/4, cup water until smooth in a cup; stir into boiling liquid. Cook, stirring constantly, until gravy thickens and boils 1 minute.
7. When ready to serve, combine olives with Bulgar; spoon onto a heated serving platter; arrange chicken on top; sprinkle with chopped parsley. Arrange lemon wedges, petal fashion, in center. Pass gravy separately.
