Mix together tomato paste and chopped tomatoes, stir in wine, browned onions and garlic, and seasonings (except parsley).
Top chicken pieces with liquids mixture.
Cover tightly and simmer for 45 minutes.
As the chicken is simmering, in a separate skillet sauté the remaining onions and mushrooms in butter until golden.
Add olives and lemon juice to the mixture.
Add this to the top of the chicken in the kettle, cover and cook another 15 - 20 minutes.

Or, even better, prepare this a day ahead and the flavors will be further enhanced.
