Hey there #realbridebrigade!
If you are following my Insta stories, you would have seen that yesterday, to break up the monotony of lockdown, I headed to the kitchen & made one of the heartiest meals! Walking into my house after school pickup, the smell was mouthwatering and my house smelled amazing and very cozy and warm.
I offered to share the recipe with you all.
Let me tell you, I am a very basic cook, but this recipe I found from Karen Martini, was truly delicious. I love the way she cooks. Guess what? My teenagers loved it too and let me tell you, they are fussy.
Lachy asked me to stay home more often & cook like this every day! I had to smile.
Anyway, here it is, enjoy!
Combine the salt, cumin, cinnamon, pepper and turmeric in a large plastic bag. Add the chicken pieces and shake to coat.
Heat the olive oil in a large heavy-based saucepan over high heat. Add the chicken and brown on all sides. Remove from the pan and set aside. Add the onion, ginger, garlic and chilli to the pan and cook for 3 minutes, adding a little more oil, if necessary. Add the tomatoes, saffron, cumin seeds and thyme and cook for 2 minutes.
Return the chicken to the pan and add the lemon juice and zest, honey, currants, stock powder and enough water to just cover the chicken.
Cover with a lid and simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes. Uncover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the chicken is tender and cooked through, and the sauce is slightly reduced.
Stir in the coriander and serve with couscous or rice.
Enjoy making & please comment below & share your thoughts!
