DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot, melt the margarine.
  • Fry the chopped onions until soft, then add the chicken, salt, pepper, turmeric and cinnamon sticks.
  • Don't worry, no one will make you eat a cinnamon stick unless you really want to.
  • Add enough water to cover the chicken, about two cups.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer until the chicken is done, adding water if necessary.
  • Remove the chicken pieces.
  • Add the apricots and simmer for about fifteen minutes.
  • Add the ground cinnamon and the honey, stir and cook until the sauce has a honey-like consistency.
  • Add more honey if necessary.
  • When the sauce is almost ready, saute the almonds in oil.
  • Drain most of the oil from the pan, and toast the sesame seeds.
  • Return the chicken to the pot and reheat.
  • Place the chicken on a serving tray, pour the sauce on top of it and top with the almonds and the sesame seeds.
  • Serve with couscous (except on Passover).
