Does anyone have a recipe for Persian Chicken with Walnuts and Pomegranates?
When I was younger, my Persian grandmother used to make this dish. She had a collection of cookbooks, which she wrote down the recipes in, but for some reason, she didn’t write this one in. I’d really love to re-create it. It was chicken with some kind of sauce, with rice, walnuts, pomegranate seeds and saffron, possibly. Any help would be great, thanks. Kirsty. Here is one… PERSIAN CHICKEN WITH POMEGRANATE & WALNUT SAUCE Printed from COOKS.COM ——————————————————————————– 1 whole chicken, cut up 1 lg. onion, chopped 1 c. walnuts, ground up 1/4 c. pomegranet paste Salt & pepper Cooked rice Boil chicken in water until cooked.
