1. In a bowl, mix the olives, oregano, lime zest, 3 tablespoons of the cilantro, 1 teaspoon of garlic, 2 teaspoons of kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Stir in 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the chicken and toss. Let stand for 30 minutes.
2. In a large soup pot, heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil. Add the onion, jalapenos and the remaining 2 teaspoons of garlic and cook over moderate heat until the onion is softened, 5 minutes. Add the ham and tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Stir in the rice and cook over moderately high heat for 2 minutes.
