My new neighbor introduced me to this way of cooking..I have just ordered the first book she lent me that had that fabulous pepper salad~
This week she lent me this one..
She mentioned she had made the Olive/Preserved Lemon Chicken~
I read the recipe.. and perused THAT book's recipe for preserved lemons.. different than the other book..
So I made this book's:) this time.. For Jojo..My Neighbor and I.. 3 jars..
I hope they are as good as the others.. 3-4 weeks will tell:)
Anyway..I was determined to make this new recipe..with my already preserved lemons:)
It was a very different recipe.. Cooking onions first then adding spices I did grind with my coffee grinder..(Cinnamon,ginger,saffron,pepper)the grinder reserved for spices..you add the mix to the onions and slather your chicken w/ this paste..The chicken cooks in broth and these spices.. you add olives and preserved lemons.. Coriander(none for J) and parsley..
It simmers for quite a bit..and you turn it 2 or 3 times..I was grateful the butcher had tied the legs and wings..it stayed intact~
You simmer it ap 1 1/4 hrs..add the preserved lemons and parsley and olives..and simmer at least another 15 mins until the chicken is done..I then transferred the cooked chicken a pepper couscous to a warmed tagine ..placed it in the warm oven while I reduced the broth/sauce the chicken simmered in..Takes a while:)
So you pick some flowers..
Get the water and wine ready..
And then voilà.. a whole new found way to cook chicken that I love..:)
I preferred it to J..
I thought it was moist and tasty..and I picked at it while saving the rest of the chicken..
The Couscous..I let go:)
I love this way of cooking w/ all the spices~
I hope you all saw this..
I would have loved to be married like this..and I dance like Elaine..On Seinfeld~
This couple..will make it:)
I LOVE THIS
Watching..it..makes me happy:)
