8 skinless boneless chicken thighs, halved if large
1 onion, chopped
2 tsp grated fresh root ginger
pinch saffron or tumeric
1 tbsp honey
400g carrots, cut into sticks
small bunch parsley, roughly chopped
lemon wedges, to serve
Tip: chicken breasts
You can make this dish using
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
instead of thighs. Simply cut them in half and
reduce the simmering time to 15 mins.
Heat the oil in a large, wide pan with a lid, add the chicken, then fry quickly until lightly coloured. Add the onion and ginger, then fry for a further 2 mins.
Add 150ml water, the saffron, honey and carrots, season, then stir well. Bring to the boil, cover tightly, then simmer for 30 mins until the chicken is tender. Uncover and increase the heat for about 5 mins to reduce the sauce a little. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon
wedges for squeezing over.
