Spicy Chicken

"I used to cook this in the oven before I had a crock-pot. For the oven: cook it in a covered dish for 1 1/2 to 2 hours at 300F or until the chicken is cooked and tender. Serve with rice and cooked or steamed vegetables. If you don't like to use the whole spices, substitute them with ground. The lemon and chilies are not authentic to this Jewish-Indian recipe."

  1. A delicious recipe Pets. I love spicy food and hot food. I found that this recipe has a wonderful well-balanced mixture flavours. What we really liked was that the flavours went right into the bones of the chicken bones. My family seat at the table sucking on the bones and then they went back for seconds. This is a lovely aromatic tasty meal and it is very easy to prepare. Thank you for posting it for us Zaarians and I hope that this recipes attracts a lot of 5 stars because it deserves it.
  2. I've never made Indian or Moroccan cuisine before and have been wanting to try some. This turned out to be the perfect recipe to try. It was easy, ingredients were easy to find here, and the taste was subtle and not overpowering. The aroma in the house was unbelievably wonderful during the two hours it was in the oven. The meat was fall off the bone tender. DH (who insists he will never eat anything with curry powder - He,he,he...)pronounced it a five star. Thanks for this delicious recipe.
  3. This was another recipe that I have been meaning to make.Thanks to all the herbs and spices you sent me...I made it ! This was so good Annelies! The house smelled wonderful!! We both love spicy foods and this was just right . I made it with chicken thighs and served it with basmati rice and vegetables.
  4. Really delicious! My only "problem" with this recipe is that PetsRus does NOT mention that you MUST have bread for the lovely, full-of-flavor "sauce"! We were scrambling to find bread because there was no way we were going to waste it! I cooked this in the oven for 1 1/2 hours, and the meat really did fall off the bone. Next time (and there will be a next time), I'm going to try chicken breasts, because I think the cooking method will keep the white meat moist and succulent. The spice combination was wonderful, even though I had to use powdered cardamom (1 1/2 t) and cinnamon (1 t). Very easy to prep and prepare, and the end result was delicious. Great recipe that we can't wait to make for friends!
  5. What a wonderful dish! Despite the many spices, this was not overwhelming. I served this with a large green salad, and a side of garbanzo bean salad. I'll be making this again, thanks.


Hello, my name is Bonnie and I am a very beautiful cat as you can see if you look at the picture at the top of this page.... What??.. I am supposed to talk about you??? But it says here: About Me!! Well all right then ...... My mom is Dutch and has moved to England in October 2007, after living 15 years in the Netherlands with my English dad. They don’t have any human children and “created” their own family, which means I have to share them with Hannah, she is a 6 years old tortie cat, Abby the dog, she is a 9 year old Beagle, and a one year old black Miniature Pincher named Poppy, I refuse to tell you my age but I am a georgious lilac British Shorthair cat!! It is obvious she adores pets just by looking at her name she uses on Zaar (many on Zaar call her Pets or Petsie Poo), her name in real life is Annelies and that is a common Dutch name. My mom always liked to cook, but since she joined Zaar it got out of control, and it doesn’t help that she is disorganized. Printed recipes everywhere in the house, the recipe binders have got bigger and just between you and me, her hips too!!! I have lived in Holland all of my life until now, but they lived in several different countries/places:- desert and coastal Oman, up North and West in Holland, Vancouver-Canada, Aberdeen- Scotland and in Norway they lived in Bergen and Oslo. We have all moved together to England, as you can see I’ve already learnt the language! I heard her say to Dad that this is the last time she moved to another country...she's had it with moving from one place to another! ( its her age...she's getting grumpy) Mom is 55 years old but I always hear her say that the date of her birthday does not mean that much to her, the date of her cancer anniversary is more important, because so far she is a survivor. Besides cooking she has other interests too, crafts, gardening and soap making. She likes Zaar and is one of the hosts on the German-Benelux Forum here on RecipeZaar. She would like to thank everybody who tries and comments on the recipes she has posted on Recipezaar, your feedback is very much appreciated. <img src="http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y227/vjuhl/MEPcookathon.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/berriesblinkie.gif" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/FFF/completedbanner.gif"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Animation1.gif" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/4treasurehunt.gif"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/purplechefhat.gif" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/chef3.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/beartag_1_1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/adopted_1_1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a>
