Ingredients

FRESH TOMATO SAUCE:

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Run your fingers between the skin and meat of each piece of chicken, leaving one side attached, to create a pocket for stuffing. Season all over with salt and pepper.

Combine turmeric, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and cilantro in a small bowl to form a paste. Divide into 9 equal parts and spread evenly between skin and meat.

Heat remaining olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium high heat. Fry chicken, skinside down first, until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to oven and bake 15 minutes.

Serve immediately, over a bed of bulgur wheat or rice, with Fresh Tomato Sauce spooned on top.

FRESH TOMATO SAUCE:

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a medium saute pan over moderate heat. Cook shallots just until golden. Add tomatoes, salt, and pepper, and cook an additional 3 minutes, uncovered. Break remaining butter into tablespoon sized pieces and stir in, along with lemon juice. When smooth, remove from heat, stir in parsley, and serve.
