Moroccan chicken with coriander, lemon and dried figs

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
50 grams Plain flour
2 Chickens; cut into preferred
; serving size pieces
40 millilitres Olive oil
2 larges Onions; chopped
6 larges Garlic cloves; minced
800 millilitres Chicken stock
1 bunch Fresh coriander; chopped
2 Lemons; zest and juice
16 Dried Calimyrna figs; stems trimmed, cut
; in half lengthwise

Season the flour with salt and pepper then add the chicken pieces to a plastic bag with the flour and seal. Shake vigorously to coat all the chicken pieces evenly with the flour.

Add the oil to a large pot and add as many of the chicken pieces as will fit comfortably and saut‚ over a high heat until the chicken is brown on all sides. Remove the browned pieces and add more oil if necessary, cooking the remaining pieces. Remove and keep warm.

To the pan in which the chicken was cooked in, add the onions and garlic and saut‚ until golden and tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the chicken stock, ½ the coriander and the lemon juice and zest and bring to the boil.

Add the figs and chicken with any accumulated juices to pot. Cover and simmer until the chicken is tender, about 35 minutes.

Using slotted spoon, transfer chicken to bowl and cover with foil to keep the chicken warm. Boil juices in pot until thickened to a sauce consistency, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Pour the sauce over the chicken. Sprinkle remaining coriander over and serve with lemon wedges.
