Donal's Notes

A recipe that can be easily cooked on the hob top but also works particularly well once a little smoke and flame hits the chicken skin. Served up with red onion, coriander and ruby jewels of pomegranate.

Method

1

Do some prep to begin with. Finely slice the spring onions, garlic and finely shred the ginger into matchsticks. Finely slice the red onions and set aside.

2

Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium high heat. Season the chicken and brown all over until the skin is golden. Remove and set aside.

3

Add the spring onions, garlic, ginger and ras el hanout to the pan and fry for a couple of minutes then add the pomegranate molasses, stock and sugar.

4

Once bubbling, return the chicken to the pan and bubble and cook over a medium  heat for 15 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

5

While the chicken is cooking, bring 500ml water to a boil and once boiling, turn off the heat and add the bulgar wheat. Give it a stir and cover with a lid. Leave to the side to absorb all the water.

6

Meanwhile, put the red onion in a bowl and squeeze over the lemon juice and season well. Add the sesame oil and pomegranate seeds and leave to macerate.

7

Once the chicken is cooked, serve with the bulgur wheat and the onion and pomegranate. Scatter with coriander and serve.
