Chicken in white wine and dried fruits

Served up as part of the Monday night main course at Arvon Centre, Moniack Mhor  this is delicious. I’ve cooked it twice up at the centre now…

You will need for 6 people

1 onion peeled and chopped

A good handful of fennel seeds

6 chicken thighs skinned and tidied up

Then some:

Dried apricots

Dried figs

Prunes

Sultanas

Raisins

Half a bottle of dessert white wine or more

A cup of water

Firstly chop the dried fruits and soak and place in a bowl. Add the wine and allow to soak for a couple of hours.

Go and read for a bit.

Coat the chicken pieces in flour and fry in a pan to seal, then add them to the casserole dish.

Sprinkle on the fennel seeds.

Add the soaked fruits and wine and the cup of water.

Place in the oven and slow cook for approx two hours til the chicken is tender. Don’t let the chicken dry out – add water or wine if needed.

The fruit will go all soft and mushy and the whole thing will smell just divine.

Serve with roasted vegetables and a hearty salad.

So sephardic…
