Not for the weak at heart, this is a sweet chicken and fruit soup from Algeria. You must serve with a crusty baguette to soak up the sweet and tangy broth. Great for using up roast chicken leftovers.
This dish was created the day after we had had a party and had lots of food left over, in particular a big pot of salsa! It's very quick and easy to make and we now make or buy salsa just to make this dish.
Ras El Hanout is a Moroccan classic spice blend with a curry like flavour. This is a great dish to make for guests because the fragrance of the chicken as it's cooking permeates the whole house and smells amazing. Serve it with rice or couscous.
I created this one night, turned out to taste fantastic. I mention on all my recipes, I can't remember the exact measurements, so play by ear.
This is the Malaysian version of Indian chicken curry, which uses coconut milk. It can be substituted with yoghurt or low-fat milk, but the taste won't be the same.
This is my family's favourite. I don't get away without doing it once a week. I call this recipe "oriental", but it makes no pretension to be authentically anything. The pickled peppers in it come from the Polish food shelf in the supermarket. If they're not available, 1-2 fresh peppers can be used instead, added at the same time as the chilli, garlic and ginger.
This is my mother's special, yet simple, recipe. Chicken marinated in garlic, oyster sauce and curry powder, then pan fried.
Aromatic cumin, coriander and cinnamon give these chicken breasts a Middle Eastern flavour, and including chickpeas further enhances the ethnic theme. Courgettes and sugarsnap peas add colour and all the benefits of fresh vegetables.
My first recipe here :) I threw this together a couple of days ago, as I found some beautiful fresh Fennel and some stunning fresh chicken legs. The idea was to mix my mothers stunning recipe for Spanish garlic chicken with the fresh fennel and give that a little Italian twist.
A lot of oil will come to the top of the dish. Don't worry, this is normal - it is the oil from the walnuts. Most supermarkets carry pomegranate juice, or you can find the syrup in Middle Eastern shops.
