This dish was inspired by really unhealthy sweet sticky chicken that everyone loves. But why does it have to be bad for you and make you feel sick after? It doesn’t! Try this recipe that doesn’t have any flour, MSG, ketchup, BBQ sauce or any of the other garbage that is usually in those recipes! It also happens to taste much better!!!
Chutney is a sauce commonly used in the cuisines of the Indian subcontinent. Chutneys vary in flavor and ingredients but are usually on the sweet side with a kick. Here is my version in this one-pot wonder.
Tagine dishes are slow-cooked savory stews, typically made with sliced meat, poultry or fish together with vegetables or fruit. Spices, nuts, and dried fruits are also used. Common spices include ginger, cumin, turmeric, cinnamon, and saffron.
You don’t have to remove the basil from its stems fully for this, you just throw it in and it tastes amazing! You can really use any kind of chicken for this recipe. If you don’t have shallots you can use a purple onion, it will be almost as good!
If you don’t feel like cutting all the cherry tomatoes in half, you can keep them whole or use 2 large tomatoes, chopped. I like halving them because their sweet juice mixes into the dish and creates a flavorful sauce. If you have leftover wine or stock you can use it instead of water! I like this dish because you don’t have to pick off each piece of rosemary from the stems, you just toss them in and they fall off in the cooking process and then when the chicken is cooked you can remove the stems!
