DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • On low heat, melt 2 ounces of the butter, add salt and pepper to taste and baste chicken thighs with molten butter.
  • Bake thighs at 400 degrees F for about 45 minutes.
  • While thighs are baking, prepare basmati rice.
  • Some minutes before the thighs are done, slice onions and fry in remaining butter (I know, it's a LOT of butter, but that's correct).
  • As soon as onions are translucent, salt to taste, then add raisins, heat through (don't let the mixture burn!), then add barberries, turn off heat and let stand until barberries are warmed, too.
  • Place chicken thighs and rice on plates, top rice with onion-raisin-barberry mixture.
  • Serve with green salad.
  • Enjoy!
