If you are serving these for Friday night dinner, only put the lamb on your hot plate or warming drawer 15 minutes before you eat. (but have it be room temperature when you put it in). Place the mint paste on right before you serve for best flavor and color
If you like a sweet chicken, this one is for you. It is naturally sweet yet has a French flavoring to it because of the wine and rosemary.
You can use a can of chickpeas instead of the uncooked ones, but why? It does not save time and this will taste better! If you want to make this an even more interesting dish, add uncooked eggs (in their shells) to the liquid and let them cook inside the stew. (can add 1 more cup of water too) The eggs will turn a golden brown and taste delicious with a bit of salt!
This lasts up to three days in the fridge, it just gets softer. If you can’t find a Chinese cabbage, a regular one does just great!
