Sweetly caramelised onions and tender chicken chunks, with small crunchy flecks of sesame seeds. No couscous tonight, simply served with bread.
Onion was softened for ten minutes whilst I cried over the shallots, trying to get them to part with their skins! Chicken was added to the soft onions, with ginger, saffron and cinnamon. Once browned a small amount of water was added and in went the shallots. 25 minutes of cooking with the lid on cooked the chicken and prepared the onions for carmelising.
I extricated the chicken and stirred honey into the onions. 20 minutes later they were gorgeously browned with a thick rich sauce. Chicken back in to warm through with plenty of seasoning.
Mr M enjoyed this and gave it a generous 8.
No blog for last night’s dinner, slow roasted lamb (in wine) with couscous. Bit of an improvised tea, so not really one for sharing..
