meantime In a deep stockpot add 1 tbsp of olive oil. Then add the
marinated chicken and sear on both sides. Add half a gallon of water, bay
leaves, cloves, and peeled onion to the pot and bring it to a boil. When the

Mash the garlic in a mortar and pestle until nearly liquified.

sauté them until golden. Add the rinsed and squeezed Molokhia leaves
and whole cloves of garlic to the mix and sauté for about 5 minutes. Add
the sieved broth and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat for 20
minutes.
Add the shredded chicken breast and lemon juice to the pot. Salt to taste.
Let simmer for 5 more minutes. Serve with steamed white rice.
