500g/1lb 2oz potatoes, halved then cut into 5cm/2in chunks

salt and freshly ground black pepper

85g/3oz stone-in green olives in extra virgin olive oil (drained weight)

2 tsp golden syrup

handful fresh flat-leaf parsley

Place the potatoes  into a slow cooker and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Season the chicken generously. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan then fry the chicken until golden-brown all over, about five minutes each side. Put the chicken on top of the vegetables.

Meanwhile, finely grate the zest of the lemon, cut four thin slices of lemon, then squeeze the juice from the rest of the fruit.

Add the zestand ras el hanout to the chicken fat and juices, fry for a one minute till fragrant, then pour in the lemon juice and stock.

Bring to the boil, then pour over the chicken. Top with the lemon slices, olives and one tablespoon olive oil from their jar, then cover with the lid and cook on low for six hours, until the chicken is very tender.

To serve, drizzle with the golden syrup. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and scatter over the chicken. Serve with dollops of creamy lactose free yogurt.
