I've had some time lately to try out some new recipes. Sadly, two of them just did not work out the way I would have liked. However, on the third day: Success!
I just uncovered this recipe among some my grandmother came up with. It's got a unique texture and flavor that is borderline exotic. I was so pleasantly surprised with not only the aroma but the taste of this dish. Enjoy!
Chicken with Tomatoes and Honey
- 4c tomatoes, cut into large chunks
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1t ginger, grated
- 2t ground cinnamon
- 1/2t pepper
- 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2T honey
- 1c chicken stock
- 1/3c golden raisins
- 1/2c cous cous
- In a 5-quart non-stick pot over medium-high heat, combine the tomatoes, onion, garlic, ginger, cinnamon, and pepper.
- Once everything is heated through, add in chicken and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for about 40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked.
- Remove chicken and keep it warm.
- Increase the heat under the sauce to high. Boil and stir often until the sauce is thick and the tomatoes begin to caramelize.
- Stir in the honey and chicken. Reduce the heat to low while you make the cous cous.
- Bring the chicken stock and raisins to a boil. Stir in the cous cous, cover, and remove from heat. Let sit according to directions (usually about 5 minutes). Fluff with a fork before serving.
